Religiousness is worldliness
Many believers faithfully support their church, read their Bible, attend Bible studies and they believe that they have salvation, but they have no relationship with Jesus Christ.
What makes you a child of God is if you HAVE THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST, not if you have a Bible. Being religious cannot save you. You have to be led by the Spirit of God. Those who are led by the Spirit of God THEY are the children of God.
Being religious is being worldly, it is just another form of idolatry. If we do not follow and obey Jesus Christ and are not led by the Holy Spirit then we cannot serve Jesus and we cannot bear fruit, then we cannot be part of His kingdom. We have to be led by the Spirit of God. We have to do those things that the Spirit guides us into doing, because without Jesus Christ we can do nothing.
You might have a church. You might have a Bible. You might do a lot of Bible study and listen to religious videos but if you have no relationship with Jesus, if you do not have the Holy Spirit and are not led by the Holy Spirit, then you cannot be pleasing to Jesus, you cannot bear fruit for His kingdom. Being religious cannot save you. You have to KNOW the Master, you have to HEAR His VOICE, OBEY Him, and FOLLOW Him. Your relationship with Jesus Christ must be real.
Jesus will say to many religious people:"Go away , I never knew you, you workers of wickedness." They were RELIGIOUS, worldly, idolaters, they never knew Jesus Christ, they followed an ideology. They practiced RELIGION.
Do you know Jesus Christ for REAL? Is your relationship with Him ALIVE? Do you HEAR His VOICE and do you FOLLOW Him every day? Are you religious or are you a child of God?
May Jesus bless you.
