“Are You Led Through A Living Relationship, Or A Lifeless Religion?”
Religious leading is a mere form that masquerades as God’s direction, without containing the life of a genuine word from the Lord. (2 Timothy 3:5; Colossians 2:18-23)
Herein lies the reason, so many, blow in, blow up, and subsequently, blow out. Relationship leading, contains a consistent, ongoing empowerment from the Lord. This second type of leading remains consistent, because it flows from one’s relationship with the Lord, as opposed to the carnal excitement of the moment, which is often predicated upon the latest Christian fad.
“God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.” (1 Corinthians 1:9 NKJV)
If believers would simply prioritize their first calling, (to fellowship with the Lord), their second calling, (of activity towards humanity), would flow from the leading of a living relationship, as opposed to the lifeless form of empty religion. (See John 5:19, 30).
