Religion or Faith

Many experience religion in this life, but few have met Jesus Christ,
For in many churches you shall find, religious people of every kind,
They religiously go every week, but, what is it that they really seek?
Eternal Truths from God my friend, or is religion their ultimate end?

Religion is manís attempt to fill, a need for God, through manís will,
Man needs to fill an emptiness, found only in Godís Righteousness,
A righteousness obtained through, Christ, who died for me and you,
Not from manís traditional piety, but through the Grace from Calvary.

To church many will religiously go, while The Lord they do not know,
Jesus Christ the head of His Church, even though they weekly perch;
They may know facts about the Lord, but, Truth He spoke is ignored,
For many churches are filled with men, who havenít been Born Again.

Born of God, by His Spirit above, beyond all the facts they know of,
So brought into the family of God, to make a difference on this sod,
To walk with God in newness of life, in the power of the Jesus Christ,
Leading into New Life, dear friend, as religious ways come to an end.

The difference in religion and faith, is a relationship attained by grace,
A personal kinship with The Savior, so one can walk with their Creator,
The One who provided the only way, to walk with our Lord day to day,
To abandon religion thatís so rife, to a faith by Grace, in Jesus Christ.

This poem speaks a volume of truth! I can tell your heart is really into helping people find God. Religion is man's way of trying to reach God through works or whatever other means he can find. Christianity is God's way of reaching man. It cannot be attained by any human means. All our works are as filthy rags to God. But God loved us so much that He made a way and sent His Son, Jesus, to atone for our sins and make a way for us to be reconciled to God and become His adopted Sons. So who has the power to save? Who has the better way? I know you know the answer is God. Since this seems to be on your heart, perhaps you could come up with a poem that illustrated the difference between religion and Christianity? By showing people, through illustration with words and the anointing of the Holy Spirit, your poetry can have an awesome impact on the hearts of your readers! Great job!
