Religious or Relational?

If I were to ask you, "In what ways are you religious?" you might say:
1. I pray.
2. I volunteer.
3. I give.
4. I worship.
5. I read.
6. I meditate.
7. I memorize.

If I were to ask you, "In what ways are you relational?" you might say:
1. I talk.
2. I laugh.
3. I cry.
4. I share.
5. I give.
6. I take.
7. I listen.

What if I told you that your religion could become a relationship? Would you believe me? Jesus says, "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with Me" (Revelation 3:20). Try opening the door of your life to Jesus and see that you can talk, laugh, cry, share, give, take, and listen to the God who created you and loves you.
