Where does our faith come from? I hope it is from a one-on-one personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
This verse does not say “Whoever copies Mom and Dad and goes to their church will enter heaven.”
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16, NIV)
Is that what our faith is like? Do we go to the same church as our parents did? Are we supporting a dead faith in a building that long ago forgot how to worship the one true God?
Do we cook over a wood stove because Granny did, or walk ten miles to work because great-grandpa did?
Be sure that your choice is real and true and honest and God-honouring.
I pray that we open our eyes and our hearts to a personal relationship with Christ. Amen.
