Jesus – The One True Higher Power

Do you think all God wants are sacrifices— empty rituals just for show? He wants you to listen to him! Plain listening is the thing, not staging a lavish religious production. 1 Samuel 15:22

Jesus enunciates a narrow way Matthew 7:14  The gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it. Entry is through a relationship with Him. There is no other way. He said “I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE.’

The rule of true religion requires that all God’s commands should be respected and obeyed. The ceremonial process is not the way to true recovery. In the rooms of AA and NA I have met many spiritual touch with their One True Higher Power – Jesus Christ but out of touch with modern-day religion. One of the greatest throw-away lines I heard in a sermon by Pastor T.D. Jakes was “What if God wants to do something totally different and He wants to do it through you?” ARE YOU READY?

I believe the true value of prayer is realized in obedience to Jesus’ command to find a secluded place, shut the door, speak to God, listen to what He commands you to do and DO IT!

Be one of ‘the few’ and follow Jesus.
