Gospel doesn’t promote religion

​Somebody once asked a Christian friend, “I can’t understand you Christians because India is the home of many religions that it is an exceedingly religious country .Why then do you introduce yet another religion and add to the confusion? Surely, India has enough religions.”
The *Christian* friend answered, “Friend, I’m *not interested in religion*, but I’m *deeply interested in the Gospel*. I would not walk across the streets for religion, but I’m willing to go around the world for the sake of the Gospel. There is a difference between the two.”
*Religion is man made; the Gospel is God given*,
Religion is what man does for God; the Gospel is what God has done for man,
Religion is man’s search for God; the *Gospel* is God’s search for man,
Religion is man trying to climb the ladder of his own self-righteousness, with the hope of meeting God at the topmost rung; the Gospel is God coming down the ladder of the incarnation of Jesus Christ and meeting us as sinners at the lowest rung (forming the steps of a ladder),
*Religion is good views; the Gospel is good news*.
Religion is good advice; the Gospel is glorious announcement.
Religion takes a man leaves him as he is; the Gospel takes a man as he is and makes him what he ought to be.
Religion ends in an outer reformation; the Gospel ends in an inner *transformation*.
Religion white washes; the Gospel washes white.
Religion often becomes a farce; the Gospel is always a force, the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes.
*There are many religions, but only one Gospel.*

moral story
An old man lived alone in an American town. His only son was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son.

Dear Son,

I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my potato garden this year. I’m just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the plot for me, if you weren’t in prison.

Love,

Dad

Shortly, the old man received this telegram:

‘For Heaven’s sake, Dad, don’t dig up the plot. That’s where I buried the GUNS !!’

At 4 a.m. the next morning, a dozen FBI agents and local police officers showed up and dug up the entire garden without finding any guns. Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what had happened, and asked him what to do next.

His son’s reply was: ‘Go ahead and plant your potatoes, Dad. It’s the best I could do for you, from here.’😇

MORAL: 

NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD, IF YOU HAVE DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING DEEP FROM YOUR HEART, YOU CAN DO IT.  IT IS THE THOUGHT THAT MATTERS, NOT WHERE YOU  ARE.
