God Isn't Religious; He Is Love!

God is not religious! We are, but He's not. You only have to look at genealogy of Jesus Christ to learn this.

Matthew 1 reveals that Abraham had a son named Isaac, and Isaac had a son named Jacob, and Jacob had Judah, the beginning of the line of Christ. Well, Judah had an illicit relationship with his daughter-in-law Tamar who had a son Perez, who is in the line of Christ. Some 5 generations later, a man named Salmon married a woman named Rahab, who we know as "Rahab the harlot," the Gentile woman who hid the spies as they were looking to conquer Jericho. And they had a son named Boaz, who married Ruth, a Moabite, and had a son named Obed, who had a son named Jesse, who had a son named David, who married a woman named Bathsheba, after having an adulterous relationship with her and murdering her husband, and they had a son named Solomon who is in the line of Christ ... do you get it?

This is the geneology of Christ! It sounds like a soap opera, doesn't it? But these are the people God chose to bring us His Son. Would you have done it this way? Never! You wouldn't have thought you could! And, if God were religious, then He wouldn't have done it this way either. He would never have allowed there to be foreigners in the line of Christ, because Israelites weren't allowed to marry foreigners. And He would never have allowed prostitutes, or those who were born out of incest, or those who were adulterers or adulteresses or murderers. Right?

But you see, God is not religious He is a lover. And he is a Savior.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life."

That word "whoever" tells us that everyone is welcome! You see in Jesus, everyone is able to be saved and to live in the love of Christ. Let's take God out of our little boxes and see Him for who He truly is: God is love!
