It is not the seat or church pew that saves you. It is not your attendance every Sunday in your "Sunday's best" that saves you. It is not how loud you sing and clap your hands that saves you. And it also doesn't matter how active you are in the church or what title you've been given, it does not save you. Church IS important (Hebrews 10:25) and while there is certainly nothing wrong with all that's been mentioned above, it again does not save you or make you right with God. We cannot and do not earn "brownie points" from God for doing these things. You can wear your best, but how does your heart look? (1 Samuel 16:7) You can sing out loud, but what does your love meter look like, in and ouside the church walls? (1 Corinthians 13:1) You've filled a seat with your body, but are you presenting your body as a living sacrifice? (Romans12:1) It can be so easy to get into the mundane of things becoming religious in activity and just being satisfied with the fact that we went to church on Sunday or a few days a week. I see a cross in this photo and beyond that are a couple of pews. Sometimes the view is backwards and we can forgot why we meet, why we serve and why we sing. Jesus is the reason! May we examine our hearts and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal anything within us that needs change. May we continue to desire to be pleasing, holy and acceptable before God and may we be the example in and outside the church walls. ❤ P.S- I speak from my heart because I can be guilty too sometimes. I'm not ever exempt from self-examination. Be encouraged. #religious#facade#heart#genuine#sacrifice#believer#Jesus#church#saved#mundane#assembly#fellowship#livingsacrifice#pew#holyspirit#cross
I know this song is kind of old, but I just like this song so much, that I made a remix of it.

Just like @danreynolds I believe that everyone has to deal with some sort of emotionally pain, but the question is how we deal with it.
I personally just bring these issues to Jesus Christ. Issues like emotional pain, fear or even stress. And he always helps me out, if you believe me or not. That doesn't mean that he let these problems disappear suddenly, but it means that he stays with me and helps me getting through it. So this works for me, because he is always there and he always hears my prayers.
So if you ever have some sort of problems like these, just try it with Jesus. What could you lose?
