I have just started reading a book by Max Lucado titled AND THE ANGELS WERE SILENT. Yesterday I finished chapter 4 and it was about Ugly Religion. I felt that this Chapter would be good to share
In this Chapter Max uses the story of the blind men,how they were loud and obnoxious because they wanted Jesus to heal their eyes so they could see.
That is the way some Christians and Denominations are. They feel like God is to busy for the poor or little people. When they are denied access to Christ,it leaves them empty. Ugly Religion.
If you don't wear the right clothes to Church,or maybe your prayers are prayed differently. Your Church has few members than most. God is not concerned about any of that. He is more concerned with your heart being right.
He just wants us to do the best we can with what we have,and that is enough for God.
In Jeremiah 29:13(NKJV)
And you will seek Me and find Me,when you search for Me with all your heart.
I recommend this book to everyone if you have not read it already.
