"Religion is about our attempt to reach God.
The Gospel is about the truth that God reached out to us.
God is not about religion, He is about relationship."
People can be pretty negative about 'religion'. And can you wonder at it when religion is all about following a set of rules whereas what God really wants is to be in a living relationship with us which we do through the power of the Holy Spirit. We follow God and obey Him because we love Him, not because we are following a set of rules.
Here are my scripture cards:
I had a partially finished masterboard which I added more layers to:
I added stamping for interest:
Then I cut the masterboard up:
and added texture paste through my new leaf stencil from PaperArtsy which was part of my prize :)
I sponged colour with the stencil in place and the texture paste still wet:
So don't be put off about God because you think religion is not for you. Open your heart to Him and you will see that He wants a living relationship with you. He wants you to know that Jesus His Son died on the cross and paid the price for your sins so that your sins would be forgiven. Jesus rose from the dead and now wants you to come and follow Him.
