The key to God’s heart

Anytime we embrace anything other than Jesus as the key to God’s heart, we open ourselves to the malignant deformation of a religious spirit. A religious spirit always accents the syllable on what we do, what we know, instead of Whose we are, and Who we know. A religious spirit always holds up the mirror before your face, not the face of Jesus. Its focus is inward, into ourselves, our performance of religious routine, our spiritual resume. In contrast the Holy Spirit (who doesn’t possess a shred of religion), always points us to Jesus. When we believe the lie that we through effort can please God, we negate the entire purpose of the cross. We become an enemy of all that God intends for us through His Son . . .

Religion that bars the door, and only lets the initiated into the deeper things of God, is the first sniff of heresy. There are no keys, no passwords, no hidden knowledge that gets you entrance to Jesus. He is the door. He, Himself is the key. He said “…the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.”
