Religion is about God, not us.

       / honest heart - (Matthew 7:7)
     / desire to be with Him
   /
Religion is about God, not about man
   \
     \ not fear of a higher being
       \ not church traditions

Religious custom today would include:
      ● That is how we have always done it.
      ● That is the way my parents did it.
      ● Your okay and I'm okay.

THE HEART OF FAITH IS GROWING COMMITMENT
What is Religion? ~
Belief – Higher Power
Participate – rite or act
RELIGION = FEAR OF HIGHER POWER
RELIGION

  FEAR            SYSTEM  
TO THE UNKNOWN GOD
We did not make God, He made us.
RELIGIOUS EXTREMES OF MAN:
THROW OUT ALL RELIGION    ↔    UNITE ALL AS ONE

Examine your own faith:
1) Don’t Piggyback off of Others
2) Have Your Own Faith
3) Don’t be Satisfied that You Know Enough

There is One Faith Given by God
  ● One body
  ● One Spirit
  ● One hope of your calling
  ● One Lord
  ● One faith
  ● One baptism
  ● One God and Father of all  
                 → above all
                 → through all
                 → in you all
Faith is God’s Invitation to Come
There is one faith
Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith
Saints keep the laws of God and the faith of Jesus
Christ’s rising is so that your faith & hope are in God
Examine yourself as to whether you are in the faith
Before faith came we were under guard by the law
God’s righteousness is shown through faith in Christ  
Continue in the faith firm in the hope of the gospel
The faith was once for all delivered to the saints
Be established in the faith, as taught, thankfully
Be in one mind striving for the faith of the gospel
Do not deny My faith as some will depart the faith
By resisting the truth one strays from the faith


~ Is your faith in the Lord, not man (yourself)?
God has delivered and He waits to see
what we will deliver as individuals.
We need to find the LIGHT from within.

TRUTH = LIGHT

Do you seek your own pleasures or consider God’s will?
Basic religion is to seek God.


God’s Call to Seek
                                      God  
           Him Diligently  
Things Above  
His Strength  
     
 
The Lord               
To Live





His Precepts   
  
SEEK YE

  With the
Whole Heart



 
 
Justice   
  Glory, Honor,
& Immortality
  Good    
  Righteousness
and Humility
   
 
  Others
Well-Being
 
  Peace

Fools hate knowledge
The wicked miss salvation without a desire for His word
God rewards those who diligently seek Him
God’s word is a torch that pierces through all delusions
We all face a decision to live or to die
God can be found if one seeks Him
God is with the humble bestowing a lifting spirit
We must do justly, love mercy, & walk humbly with God
Filled with and growing in the knowledge of His will
May know the hope of His calling & riches of His inheritance
For the upright in heart, God brings light in the darkness
Consider what manner of person you ought to be
To live is to love whereby here stands the law of God

To Obey
To Heed
Do Justly
Love Mercy
Broken Spirit
Contrite Heart
Righteousness
Knowledge of God

● To Walk by faith
● To Walk in the Spirit
● To Walk humbly with God
● To Walk worthy of the Lord
● To Walk after His commandments
● To Walk prudently in His presence  
● To Walk in newness of life
● To Walk in the truth
● To Walk in wisdom
● To Walk in love
In pursuit of God one finds true life
To please God, one must believe the He is
He rewards those that diligently seek Him
Faith is hope of what cannot be seen
For we walk by faith, not by sight
From the heart one believes as confessions save
Rightly dividing the word finds God’s approval
Love of God drives a diligent heart to find Him
A diligent heart flourishes upon the issues of life
Be diligent & forget not but teach what you know
Diligence prepares one to live a more secure life
Do not lag in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving God
Be diligent, not sluggish, with faith and patience
Diligently unceasingly add virtues to your character
Without faith the hopeless crumble

  FAITH = HOPE  


FAITH = TRUST

Faith is Expressed in Actions
──────────────────────
FAITH = EMBRACE OBEDIENCE

 FAITH  = ● Hear The Gospel Of Christ
● Believe-Have Faith In Christ 
● Repent Of Your Sins
● Confess Jesus Christ
● Baptized-Immersed

INACTION ≠ ACTION
Limited Faith ≠ Active Faith
Unlimited Faith = Fully Developed Faith
God Established Order before Creation
Prepared Beforhand = Good Works
We = Created in Christ Jesus
  Good Works = Should Walk in Them  

Without works in Him Faith has no worth
Salvation is for those doing the will of God
Beware of being led away in errors of the wicked
It is not "once saved always saved" when falling away  
One must turn to the word and respond for salvation
We were created for good works in Christ Jesus
Without good works, faith alone will not save you
Conscience is vital in writing His word on the heart
Without self-control = spiritually disqualified
Works counter to His will ban one from salvation
To believe in God requires action upon His calls
Faith working through love is our key
God is greater than our guilt as we heal to Him
God will render judgment based on our deeds
1.YES GOD CAN BE PLEASED        
How can one set out to please God?

FERVENTLY AND FAITHFULLY

Can we rise to open our herts to Him?

PURITY
DEVOUT
FOCUS
DEDICATED
HONESTY
FAITH IN THE GROWTH PROCESS
FEED, CHALLENGE, REFRESH
Belief in God feeds the soul’s return to sense
His eyes and ears realize cries of the righteous
The Lord delivers the righteous from their troubles
We need to ask for strength against souls who hate
It is through striving that we return to peace in Him
In contempt we become cynically untrusting
Sacrifices of thanksgiving & joy is healing He gives
Freedom in vision comes to who love the Lord
Success in life is only achieved through helping
God knows who puts their trust in Him
Each of us alone must overcome temptations
Temptations are overcome when trust is in Him
It is by faith that a person can stand for joy of God
With content confidence in God, what can man do?


May God bless you and be with you always!
