Don’t matter how much money you got, there’s only two kinds of people: there’s saved people and there’s lost people. – Bob Dylan
Yes – that quote is from singer/songwriter Bob Dylan. Like many of the lyrics in his songs Dylan is spot-on. I don’t pretend to know Dylan’s relationship with God or even your relationship with God (or judge you for it), but I do know that life is better if you have that relationship.
Just as there are different people, different languages, different countries, people have different views (or none at all) about a relationship with God. Do a Google search for “religions” in your town and see what you find. Then do a Google search for “churches” in your town and prepare to be amazed at how many different churches you find which, for the most part, will follow one of those religions.
Then your job (if you decide to take it), is to visit one of these churches.
I can’t tell you which one will be right for you. Often religious preferences are based on what your family did in the past. Maybe you would like a quickie service (in at 11 and out by 12) kind of like a drive-thru service! Maybe you don’t want to dress up, or maybe you like contemporary music instead of hymns. Maybe your schedule prevents you from attending a Sunday service, so you need to find a church that has Saturday services.
Why even attend church and have to meet people and act nice? In Matthew 18:20 (NIV) it says, For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
If you need to know more about being what people mean when they say they are “saved,” you can read about it and how easy it is HERE
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. – Romans 10:9-10 (NIV)
Have a great week!
