Religion or Relationship

What is Christianity to you?  Is it about a specific religion or church affiliation?  Following rules and guidelines and a long lists of dos and don'ts?  Well if that is the case, dear friends, let me tell you, there is so much more and you are missing out!  Being a Christian is about a deep and intimate relationship with Christ.  It's about falling in love with our Maker and feeling His power and touch in our lives.  Christ is more than a Sunday morning feeling or a religious group. 

One of my favorite songs has a powerful message and tells my feelings exactly:   

More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It's like I'm falling, oh
It's like I'm falling in love
(chorus from Jason Gray's More Like Falling In Love)

I do not want to simply belong to a church group and label myself.  I want a true relationship with Christ.  The way we love our spouse, desire their attention and enjoy being around them, that is how it should be with Christ.  We should deeply love Christ and desire His attention and to give Him attention.  We should enjoy talking and listening to Him everyday.  We should never be satisfied with simply having something to believe in and give our allegiance to.  We should fall in love and lose our heart to Him. 

Just as I have been challenged, I want to challenge you.  Go deeper.  Do not become satisfied.  Press in for more of Christ.  Fall in love with Him like never before.  Tell Him this is what you want and let Christ pour His self on you in new ways.  Friends, fall in sweet love with the One who loves you.
