Romans 2:9-11 “There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. But there will be glory, honor, and peace for everyone who does what is good, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. God does not have favorites.” (CEB)
When it comes to how God looks at you and your position: things like the church your go to, your religion, denomination or status, are of no consequence.
God does not have a religion. As a matter of fact, when Jesus walked this earth, he was the biggest critic of religion and religious people. You see, it is the structure of religion that breeds injustice, wicked behavior, greed, jealousy, murder, fighting, deception, malice, gossip, slander, rudeness, pride, bragging, misunderstanding, disloyalty, disaffection, and lack of mercy. Has religion done some good things? Yes, but so did J. P. Morgan, atheists, and secular organizations.
God will reward everyone regardless of religious affiliation based on, not just good works for the sake of good works, but for good works based on a change of heart. This change of heart is the result of a relationship with God through Jesus Christ inspired by the Holy Spirit. It all has to do with a relationship and not an affiliation.
You could call yourself a Christian based on the church you attend on Sunday, but a Christ-follower does what Christ says twenty-four hours a day. It is a relationship of love and of living your life as a continual worship of Him. It is doing your job for Jesus. It is eating your meals for Jesus. It is driving your car for Jesus. That’s the relationship that God wants, not the empty worship of people on any given Sunday and any given church.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t attend church services or be a member of a congregation. In fact, the bible teaches that we are to be in fellowship with other believers and meet together regularly. What you need to be watchful of is your reason for attending church.
Examine your motives for worshiping or going to church. Is it because you have to or because you want to? Are you going as a sense of obligation, tradition, or habit or is there something inside of you that desires a true relationship with God to gather together with others and worship Him in Spirit and in truth? Are you getting to know God through daily prayer and meditating on His word or are you living your life despite God?
Seek out a true relationship with God through Jesus Christ and your religion will be transformed by your relationship.
