A purpose in life

When people hear the word “Christianity” today, the mind of many people goes to lukewarm, bigoted, “happy-go-lucky” individuals who are happy to “go to church” every Sunday, while on any other day they literally live as if God doesn’t exist. It is those same “Christians” who try to push religion they label “Christian” down people’s throats and who get so mixed up into the political arena, as if God has given them the authority to establish His rule on earth in the form of a secular government.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am far from perfect, and my intention is far from rebuking or accusing anybody. I love those persons, as much as I love those who choose to live in open rebellion against God. I too used to live that kind of convenient “Christianity”, fooling myself to think that I was in God’s “good books”, while at the same time struggling with habitual sin. Until the moment when Jesus came and demolished my illusion, and showed me what His will is and how I am to follow Him. Many of the things I had believed to be unshakable truth turned out to be human traditions, that had found their way into the true worship of God, altering His church and fragmenting it into thousands of pieces. This system, with all those fragments, is the traditional (after men’s traditions) church, that has departed thousands of miles far from the Lord’s intention for His ekklesia, that we call “church”.

I am grateful to Him for bringing me out of that system, and out of my mediocrity and my bondage to sin. There are millions of people today who are still trapped in that system, some of whom are searching for the truth and freedom. They are the reason that I decided to create this blog, along with all those who would stay far from any established religious system, having been disillusioned from the hypocrisy of religion. This is because I am advocating not another religious movement, not an opinion of man, but the plan of Him who has created everything, and who has the plan for perfection and peace. His name is Jesus, or Yeshua.

There are a lot of things I can talk about, but for now I only want to say this: Those of us who have found the truth in His person, and who have been saved by His grace, we need to come back to the purpose of our salvation. This is what we see concerning that purpose: “and He died for all, that the living ones may live no more to themselves, but to Him who died for them and having been raised.” (2Co 5:15, MKJV). And again, “For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. For both if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore both if we live, and if we die, we are the Lord’s.” (Romans 14:7-8, MKJV). We need to re-focus and find our way back into His eternal purpose. this is a subject by itself, and I will expand on that soon. But for now, I just want to leave readers with this challenge – learn how to live not for yourselves, but for Him who paid the price for you, by His own blood.
