Many people think Christianity is religion. It’s not! Christianity is an actual experience where forgiveness from God actually becomes reality in your heart and conscience.
Forgiveness is found by you…because you placed your belief in a Saviour that bled and died on the cross…for you personally! Forgiveness is freedom from the bondage of sin. The heart is made clean by the Grace of God. Forgiveness is freedom from the guilt in your conscience caused from all past sins. Only the Grace of God that flows from Calvary can offer man the true experience of forgiveness from sin. This forgiveness is the actual experience of becoming a child of God.
This forgiveness shows man Christ is supreme above all other God’s and religions. The clean heart and the forgiveness of sins is not a religious experience but a real life experience that you know is real. Not only did Christ die so we could be forgiven. Christ rose from the grave so we (Christians) could walk in a newness of life.
This newness of life and character is an actual experience produced in the heart of a believer by a Living Saviour that is a supreme being. He is the creator of all things. Col. 1 Christ is greater than religion. Christ is greater than politics. Christ is greater than our social affairs. Christ controls the economy. Christ is above all things…He is the head of the Church, the body of Christ.
Col 1:14-18…In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church:
Christian’s are members of that body! Christian’s are ambassadors (representatives) for Christ. How? Why? Because they received the actual Christian experience. Forgiveness of sins and a holy heart! No other religion in the world can provide man with forgiveness from sin, a holy heart, and a life of peace and contentment until eternity. Christianity is not to be mistaken for religious practice. Christianity is where forgiveness is found, the holy life is lived out, and the living person of Christ has full sway of your life. You are subject to a living Christ! Christian’s experience God through Christ! Christians have faith in the image of the invisible God. Bible faith fortifies, builds, and gives evidence of the true and living Christ. Heart and life experience proves the reality of Christianity! Religion cannot take away sin! The person of Christ can! Religion cannot give you a holy heart. The person of Christ can! I testify to such experience and you will too! Glory! I leave this following verse about the blessing of Christ that comes to the Christian heart by the Grace of God.
Titus 2:10-14…that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
