Has salvation/justification earned through faith in the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross made Christianity a cheesy, entertaining religion of automatic entitlement to personal desires?.
Christianity is not mainly entertainment, praise and worship services in the name of feeling good or reaching out to other (these are necessary too) but we need to be transformed by the renewing of our mind after our initial encounter with God, by fervently studying the word, praying and representing our saviour in words, thoughts and deeds. The word of God is powerful, tearing asunder the hearts of men, transforming souls. He puts in us both to will and do his good pleasure. We only need to submit to the Holy Spirit within us.
The letter below may be a simple act of love but, anything done in the name of our Lord is lifting him up in worship.
God calls us just as we are, we may be as red as crimson but, he makes us white as snow through faith, we must not continue to sin that grace may abound.
No one can remain the same, we either get worse and loss our calling or become the personified revelation of God to man in our day-to-day living and inherit the gift of eternal life.
