Thoughts on Communion that will bless you!

Dave Finley from our church ran across the following article that we wanted to share with you. It will bless you!

Communion: The Passover Connection

June 1, 2007

Dr. John Miller is a chiropractor who was led to study the Passover connection with the Lord’s Supper and the ancient prophecies about a sin-bearing Messiah. By uncovering these Jewish roots, John found a remarkable pathway to healing.

THE LORD’S SUPPER CONTAINS A KEY TO HEALING

John was searching for biblical keys to healing when he came upon this verse, written by the Apostle Paul:   “For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.  For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep” (1 Corinthians 11:29-30).

John said, “This Scripture plainly says that failing to discern the body of the Lord will make you weak, or sick, or cause you to die prematurely. From this it follows that proper discernment or understanding will bring you healing. Although the Scripture says this so definitely, I had been in church all my life, and not only had I never heard this taught, I had never seen it applied.”

John’s research of the deep wisdom contained in this verse led him to the Jewish feast of Passover.

THE LORD’S SUPPER OCCURRED IN A PASSOVER SEDER

The Gospel of Luke describes how the Lord’s Supper came to be created. In the following passage, Jesus is speaking:

“‘I have looked forward to this hour with deep longing, anxious to eat this Passover meal with you….’ Then He took a loaf of bread; And when He had thanked God for it, He broke it apart and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body, given for you. Eat it in remembrance of me.’

After supper He gave them another glass of wine, saying, ‘This wine is the token of God’s new agreement to save you – an agreement sealed with the blood I shall pour out to purchase back your souls’” (Luke 22: 14-20 Living Bible Translation).

PASSOVER WAS A SACRED JEWISH OBSERVANCE

John believes that it is not a coincidence that the Messiah gave this new observance during Passover. He explains: “Jesus came as the Messiah to the Jewish people, and fulfilled hundreds of Jewish prophecies and symbols. Passover was one of the most sacred of all Jewish observances, and literally foreshadowed the deliverance that would come to people when the Messiah appeared.

“Passover occurred at the culmination of the ten plagues that were brought on Egypt, so that the Jewish people could come out of slavery to serve God.  Jewish families killed and cooked a lamb, and then put the blood of the lamb on the doorposts of their houses. Seeing the blood, the angel of death literally passed over their home.  The feast of Passover, still practiced by observant Jews today, commemorates this event.”

THE BODY OF THE PASSOVER LAMB SYMBOLIZED HEALING

“The blood of the lamb was important — it was on the doorpost to save their lives — but they were also commanded to eat all the body of the Passover lamb. The body of the lamb was to save their bodies. The Bible said they came out without one feeble one among them. Eating the body of the Passover lamb was the reason that none was feeble.

There is a spiritual significance here. If we take the Passover lamb as a symbol for the coming Messiah, we can easily recognize that the brain of the lamb symbolized the mind of the Messiah. The lamb’s eyes signified the ability to see things the way God does. The heart of the lamb meant to have the compassionate heart of the Messiah.

So, one way of recognizing the body of the Lord, our Passover lamb, is to meditate on all the parts of the Passover lamb as we eat the bread of the Lord’s Supper. One of my friends did this and his peripheral vision was immediately healed.”

THE LORD’S SUPPER RESTORED HIS PERIPHERAL VISION

“My friend raced cars for a living, and he had a bad crash. He really was blessed to be alive. However, this wreck had cost him his peripheral vision, which is a pretty severe limitation for a professional driver. One night he was visiting at my house and as we talked, I explained the power and purpose of the Lord’s Supper to him.

“It was about two o’clock in the morning, when we decided to share the Lord’s Supper together and meditate on its healing properties.  I broke the bread and handed him a piece. We took pieces of broken bread, chewed them slowly and meditated for quite a while on what it meant for Jesus to give his body to be broken for us.

“As my friend meditated on the truth of healing through the Jesus, he imagined eating every part of the Passover lamb, just as the ancient Hebrews were commanded to do. When he imagined eating the lamb’s eyes, his own eyes were healed and his peripheral vision came back.”

A PASTOR WAS HEALED OF CANCER AFTER TAKING THE LORD’S SUPPER

“Discerning the body means eating the bread of the Lord’s Supper thoughtfully and meditatively, considering all the implications of the suffering that the Lord endured on our behalf. Jesus took on Himself the sins and sicknesses of us all. We meditate on what it means to be free of all that. When we take the Lord’s Supper, however, this won’t do us much good unless we believe it. We cannot be forgiven for our sins unless we receive it, and we cannot be healed of our sicknesses unless we believe it.

“Many people are healed once they understand and believe this. For example, Troy Miller, no relation, is a pastor in Florida who had cancer of the kidney. He was bedfast in the hospital, not expected to recover. The Lord spoke to his mother, telling her to take the Communion elements of bread and wine to him in the hospital. When Troy received Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, the cancer began to disappear from his body, even as he lay there in the hospital.”

Another example is from a young mother named Jane who was hospitalized with numerous injuries after a terrible car wreck. The doctors were predicting the worst, but when her father brought Communion to her in the hospital, she immediately began to get better.

HEALING IS OFTEN GRADUAL, NOT SUDDEN AND SPECTACULAR

One thing that Sid Roth often emphasizes is the difference between healing and miracles. He teaches: “Many times people are expecting their healing to take place dramatically and immediately. I think they get miracles and healing mixed up. Miracles are immediate and often spectacular. However, in practice, most healing takes place gradually. By recognizing the value of gradual healing, we can increase our faith immensely. It gives us the patience and confidence to wait on the healing to manifest, recognizing small, positive changes as we make daily observance of the Lord’s Supper.”

John describes two of his experiences with gradual healing through the Lord’s Supper: “One young lady was brought to me who was dying from Epstein Barr virus. The virus had destroyed 39% of her liver, and she was very ill.  She had been in medical care, but it was giving her no hope. At my suggestion, she began taking Communion three times a day, discerning the Lord’s body, broken so that she might have her healing. Within two weeks I received a call from her father who said that her lab tests were starting to come back as normal. A year later, she was in perfect health, with no trace of the virus in her blood.

“I myself was healed of chronic headaches which had developed from a head injury. Every day I took a large chunk of bread and chewed it bite-by-bite, meditating on the mystery of exchanging my sickness with Jesus’ wholeness, because all my diseases were placed on Him. He paid the price for my wholeness.”

THE SIN-BEARING MESSIAH ALSO TOOK OUR SICKNESSES

John also researched Isaiah’s prophecy about the sin-bearing Messiah. “The ancient rabbis believed that Isaiah 53, written 700 years before the birth of Jesus, described a coming Messiah who would take our sins and our sicknesses onto His own body. They called this Messiah the Leprous Messiah because He would be disfigured by the sins of humanity. They saw in the passage that He would be a source of healing as well as forgiveness of sin.

But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

John continues: “Note that the prophecy says, By His stripes, we are healed. Part of this passage is repeated in Matthew 8:17 and again in 1 Peter 2:24 because it is so important. The stripes referred to were 39 lashes that were laid on His back when he was scourged prior to being crucified.

“Jesus’ body was beaten in punishment for the sins of humanity. In becoming the Lamb of God, Jesus took the punishment for us, so we could be the righteousness of God in Him. It was not pointless suffering, but was something He accepted so that we could be healed, soul and body, according to prophecy.  Isaiah 53:10 says that it pleased the Lord to bruise Him, and that He was made to be sick with our sicknesses and sin with our sins.

“The recent movie by Mel Gibson, The Passion, does not really portray how much abuse Jesus actually took. The Bible says that the lashes flayed His back so completely that it looked like one big stripe. His beard was plucked out and His face was beaten. Isaiah 56 gives a very graphic description of the beating He took when He became sin for us. He was made unrecognizable by the beating.”

Since He was made to be sick with our sicknesses, we shouldn’t bear our own sicknesses any more than we should continue to bear our own sin. When it comes to redemption, it is wrong to separate sin and sickness. God wants the whole man — body, soul and spirit — to be reconciled with Him. Both sin and sicknesses are works of the devil. Sin is his work against our spirit and sickness is often his attack against our body.

THINK OF THE LORD’S SUPPER AS A KIND OF MEDICINE

John encourages people to think of the Lord’s Supper as if it were medicine: “If you went to a doctor and got some pills, you would take them as directed, maybe two or three times a day, and you would not expect to be completely healed the first time you took them. I encourage people to place as much faith in the Lord’s Supper as they do in their doctor’s medicine. If you are sick, take the Lord’s Supper like any other medicine. Every time you take it, meditate on the Lord’s body, expecting gradual healing to manifest. Communion is yours to take as often as you feel led to do so. Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and you are the priest, and you can observe Communion wherever and whenever you decide.

“Jesus said, ‘What things soever you desire, believe you receive it and you will have it.’ In Communion you can believe that you are being progressively healed and this takes the pressure off to receive healing all at once.

If we take Communion on a regular basis, daily or even several times a day, we can take it believing in progressive healing. This is good for people who do not have the faith to receive immediate, total healing, and it builds their faith because they can see small, progressive improvements. The important thing is to take the Lord’s Supper in faith, recognizing signs of improvement.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

1. John encourages everyone to develop observance of the Lord’s Supper as a way of life. If you are very sick, take it several times a day, just as you would take any other medicine.

2. You can observe the Lord’s Supper by yourself, in your own home or wherever you are. The earliest followers of Jesus did it every day, going from house to house according to the book of Acts. You do not need to be in church or have a pastor present.  In God’s eyes, you are a priest. You are the temple of the Holy Spirit, so it is your privilege and your obligation to observe the Lord’s Supper.

3. You do not need any special bread or wine, because it is your faith that is the key, not the material objects you use. Faith is the key to unlocking all of the promises of God. Jesus said, “What things soever you desire, believe you receive them and you shall have them.” When we take Communion in faith, then we enter not only in to forgiveness of sin, but also healing for our body.

4. John says, “I like to take a large hunk of bread so that I can chew it and meditate for a long time on this mystery. I have made a string with 39 knots on it, and as I chew the bread, I touch the knots thinking of the 39 lashes that Jesus took for me. This helps me to discern the Lord’s body, and the freedom I now have because I have reconciliation with God.  I think of my healing as something that is already done, already accomplished. As I eat the bread, I receive healing in every cell, every organ and every function of my body.

5. “After taking communion, it is a very good time to cast out spirits of infirmity. We must not underestimate the role of evil spirits because 11 of 19 individual healings that Jesus did involved casting out a spirit of infirmity. I like to think of doing spiritual warfare with the blood of Jesus on my breath.”

FINAL THOUGHTS

“I have been privileged to bring the message of healing through the Lord’s Supper in many parts of the world, and have had the great blessing of seeing all types of illness healed when people learn the truth. The truth is that every disease and every sin you can ever know has already been taken by Jesus, so you do not have to suffer it. Put your faith into receiving what Jesus did at Calvary. Think about it when you take the Lord’s Supper, and have abundant life.  Your only question should be whether your healing will come gradually or as a sudden miracle.”

Communion: The Passover Connection

Sunday, Dave Finley shared with us some wonderful thoughts he read from Sid Roth’s Website on Communion and the connection to Passover. As you know, Dave believes in and has experienced the healing power of communion and challenges us all to receive everything that has been provided for us at the Cross .We are including the link here so you may read the article and be blessed: https://sidroth.org/articles/communion-passover-connection/


Jesus!!!


We shared a song Sunday Morning, “Jesus Name is Highly Lifted Up” Many times in life we have used the powerful Name of Jesus to save us and protect us. There is power in the Name of Jesus! That Name is all we need to say to bring deliverance in our hour of need. Thank God He has given us that Name to call on. We can come boldly before the throne of grace to obtain help in our hour of need.

There is another song that says there is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain. By that Name we can walk out of every bondage we are in. We can walk in freedom and deliverance. The power of the enemy can be broken over everything that binds us.

We can share many testimonies of how that the Name of Jesus protected us from the harm of the enemy. Many times all we had time to say was “Jesus” in the middle of an emergency but that was all we needed to say. That Name is more powerful that anyone can even imagine. satan desires to kill still and destroy in our loves but Jesus came that we might have life more abundantly. We chose to walk in His abundance. satan has no power over our lives. Our lives belong to Jesus and we have chosen to walk in the fullness of all that He has planned for us.

Say Jesus! Say Jesus! Say Jesus! There is power in that Name!!!


You Might Be Their Last Chance

Every day we come across hurting people who need to know about the unconditional love of God. They need to know that he cares about everything they are going through and that He has a plan to bless them. He wants to turn their desperate situations into a testimony of His love and grace in their lives. He wants to deliver them and set them free from every hurt and disappointment.

It is our prayer that we will slow down enough in our busy activities to share the love of God with them. We pray that we will not miss an opportunity to minister. We are the church and we must take His message of unconditional love and Grace outside the 4 walls to a hurting world.

If we will just be His love extended to our world we will be amazed at what He will do through us. We will be amazed at the unconditional divine flow of love that will minister to others. Make yourself available to Him today. Ask God to use you to be His blessing to everyone around you. This is His heart and he will love through you.

You might be their last chance!

Believe That You Receive And You Will Have It.

Proverbs 23:7 (KJV) “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…”

Proverbs 23:7 (KJV) “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…”

Believe that you receive and you will have it.

Matthew 21:22 says: " And all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. They key is believing what you ask for in prayer. I heard a pastor say many years ago: "If you pray for rain carry an umbrella.” It is important that we pray in faith believing.

If you are facing problems in your life find a precious promise from God's Word and stand on it. Keep that promise in your mouth and in your mind. Meditate (think about) about that promise of God until you fully understand it. Ask the Holy Spirit who is your teacher to reveal to you all that the promise means.

If you are believing for healing for example, you have to change the inner image you have of yourself. You have to begin seeing yourself as healed. I know this from personal experience. I saw myself as sick who needed healing. Every time God came through for me and brought the healing I needed. The Holy Spirit began to minister to me about divine health and challenged me to see myself as healed. I got an image of myself running up the court house steps like "Rocky". I saw myself as healed and well. No longer do I see myself as sick but I see myself as healed. From that day until this day my body continues to get stronger and I feel younger than I did 20 years ago.

All of this has happened because I began to see myself differently in my heart and mind. Proverbs 23:7 says: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:.."  If you see yourself as sick in your mind it will manifest (happen)  in your body. If you see yourself as healed it also will manifest in your body. Before long you will find yourself getting stronger and free of what has been ailing you if you take the time to change the inner image you have of yourself. As you think of you self as well your body will begin to respond to that faith you have in your heart.
Refuse to let go of the thought that you are healed. The Word of God says in Isaiah 53:5: " with his stripes we are healed". God's Word is true. Refuse to doubt it. Use your stubbornness to refuse to doubt His Word. When the enemy temps you to doubt that promise cast down those thoughts. Stay focused on what God has promised you in His Word.

The enemy cannot steal our faith in His Word unless we allow it. He doesn't have the power to make us do anything. We belong to Jesus and we have been given power over him. The greater one lives inside of us and we can do all things through Christ who strengthen us.

Believe That You Receive And You Will Have It.

Fighting Stress with the Bible

It is not God’s will for you to live under stress. This is not God’s best for our lives. Thankfully the Bible gives us ways to minimize stress in our lives. Here are 3 biblical principals you can use to deal with stress.

1. Refuse to doubt God’s word.
God has given us precious promises that we can stand on in times of difficulty. The Bible says that heaven and Earth may pass away, but not one detail of his Word will disappear until its purpose is achieved (Matthew 5:18). God promises to watch over his Word to be sure that it is performed in your life.

And the LORD said, “That’s right, and it means that I am watching, and I will certainly carry out all my plans.”
— Jeremiah 1:12, NLT

2. Be careful what you think and speak.
The Bible says that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks (Matthew 12:34b). Repent of anything you are holding in your heart that doesn’t line up with God’s Word. Fill your heart with the Word of God in abundance, so that his words are what come out of your mouth automatically when you are under pressure.

3. Learn to rest.

The Bible says that we labor to enter into rest (Hebrews 4:11). It takes great faith to place things in God’s hands and leave them there. He has promised to work all things together for your good. Learn to rest in that promise and let him perform his Word in your life.

Be a Living Example of Love

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Romans 5:5

Don’t ever worry about not having enough love inside you. The Word says God’s love is shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Ghost. God’s love is in you. What you need to do is make a decision and let it flow.

Pray this prayer today.

In Jesus’ Name, I make a fresh and strong commitment today to live the life of love, to let the tenderness of God flow through me and heal the wounded hearts of those I meet.

Father, teach me to love even when things go wrong. To be patient and kind when the children are underfoot. To overlook the spiteful words of an angry spouse. To rejoice when someone at the office gets the raise that I thought I needed. Teach me to talk in love, to lay gossip quietly aside and to take up words of grace instead.

Lord, Your Word says that Your love is already inside me...that it has been shed abroad in my heart. So today, I resolve to remove every obstacle that would keep that love from flowing freely into the lives of others. I put resentments behind me, and I forgive all those who’ve done me wrong.

In the days ahead, cause me to increase and excel and overflow with Your love. Cause me to be what this world needs most of all...a living example of love. Amen.

Don't Settle for Less. Receive God's Best!

You have to learn how to RECEIVE God’s BEST.

The main reason we aren’t receiving His best is because we are willing to settle for less
Very few are committed to God’s best.  We have been influenced more by the world than by God’s Word and “dumbed down” to accept far less than what God has provided. As long as you can live with less than God’s best, you will. 

You have to get sick and tired of being sick and tired before you will aggressively pursue God’s best. You have to have a holy dissatisfaction with mediocrity before you can experience all that God has for you. It doesn’t happen accidentally or automatically. If you don’t pursue it, you won’t get it.

Everything in our fallen world naturally goes from good to bad. Things don’t get better without effort. We have to seek to find, knock to get the door opened, and ask before we receive  (Matt. 7:7). We must raise our sights and aim higher. Most people are shooting at nothing and hitting it every time.

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end [hope and a future, New International Version]

When the Lord spoke to Jeremiah to write these words, Israel was devastated. The city of Jerusalem had been destroyed, and many people had been taken captive to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar. Thoughts of peace were probably the last thing on their minds. But Jeremiah went on to say in verses 12-13“Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”

I’ve had people tell me they prayed and believed God but that nothing happened. These scriptures promise otherwise. So, who’s right? I choose to believe God is true. The key is, we have to seek with ALL our hearts. That’s the missing element. We have to reach a point where we won’t live with anything less than God’s best.

That attitude is missing in the lives of far too many Christians. The bar of expectations, even within the church, has been lowered in regards to healing, finances, and more.There is such a fear that someone might be disappointed and, therefore, condemned that many ministers have been teaching people to settle for less and avoid the disappointment.

I am not trying to condemn anyone. We have all been raised in and influenced by an ungodly culture. And nobody learns how to receive God’s best overnight. It’s a process, but we need to begin moving in that direction. I haven’t arrived there either, but I have left and am on my way. God has far more for all of us than we are experiencing.

Have You Found Your Destiny?

Have You Found Your Destiny?

God has called us, Freedom Christian Center of Fort Mill, to build a House of Unconditional Love at the Upper Room. Just as the Marines are looking for a few good men we are looking for those who have a tremendous love for the lost.

Our world needs revival like never before. We are looking for Intercessors who who will become desperate enough to answer the call of Ezekiel and stand in the gap. Fasting and prayer will precipitate the latter rain that will fall upon the earth. Will you answer that call?

God will never call us to do something small and safe-we don't need God for that. Come worship with us on Sunday mornings at 11 am see if God would have you be a part of the army He is raising up.

Please join us: 8409, Regent Parkway, Fort Mill, SC 29615.

Understanding Grace and Faith

We can become so familiar with a certain passage of scripture that we don't really know what it says. We don't pay attention to it anymore because it has become so common to us. Ephesians 2:8-9 has become one such passage for many believers.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

There are some profound truths revealed here, one of which is that we are saved by grace through faith.

The body of Christ is basically divided into two groups: Those who emphasize grace (what God does) and those who emphasize faith (what we do).

One group preaches that everything is totally up to God.  They say, "Everything is determined by the sovereignty of God. It's whatever He chooses." The other group teaches, "No, you have to do this and that, and this and that."  

Those who preach man's responsibility will normally say that those who teach that it's just all up to God are totally wrong. Those who preach that it's all up to God will teach against those who say man has some responsibility in the matter.

You might phrase this issue differently, but it all comes down to the question, "What do I do—what part is God's part, and what part is mine?"

God's Word clearly teaches a balance between grace and faith.

Even though the body of Christ typically divides into two camps—one emphasizing what God has to do, and the other emphasizing what we have to do—Ephesians 2:8-9 says that we are saved by grace through faith. We aren't saved by one or the other.

The Effects of Praise

Praise affects every area of our lives—our personal relationship with God, our spiritual warfare against the devil, our own mental and emotional well-being. Praise is something a Christian just cannot do without. It ought to be the first thing we do each morning to begin the day, and it ought to be the last thing we do each evening to end the day. We should begin and end every prayer with praise unto the Lord.The Scripture admonishes us to praise the Lord constantly—in the morning, at noon,and when the sun goes down.

God desires to have a relationship with every believer,and we develop that relationship through studying His Word and spending time communing with Him. Praise is a part of that.Praise brings intimacy, and when we experience an intimate relationship with the Father, we experience eternal life.

I really believe that our ministry unto the Lord through praise is the most important thing we can do in our Christian walk. If we would begin to operate in this and understand how praise affects the Lord and how it ministers unto Him, this would provide the basis of a foundation that will last us through our lives—not only in crisis times, but throughout the entire time we’re here on the earth.

I want to encourage you to take notes and send me a summary of what I ministered.

These 2 messages are teachings that you need to get deep down on the inside of you.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

God Bless You,

Pastor Ron Lambright

You Are For Me

Many years ago in a very trying time of my life God woke up people all around the world to pray for me. How I needed that at the moment. I want you to know that we are covering you in prayer.

You are not alone.

God hears every cry of your heart and He is working for you. God loves you unconditionally and He will not ever leave or forsake you.

Please listen to this song by Kari Jobe. It will remind you that He is always there. http://youtu.be/6d9Lkgy-Nkc.

We are  standing with you for every miracle you need. We would love for you send your prayer requests to us here. Remember God loves you unconditionally and we do to!

True Christianity

Jesus has already paid for your sins.The extent of your sin or how good you've been are not the issue. There is only one sin that separates you from God, and that is failing to believe in Jesus (John 16:9).

Salvation comes down to one thing: will you accept what Jesus has done for you?

False Christianity and false religions teach that you have to try to maintain your own goodness and somehow earn relationship with God, but it can't be done. Imagine the time when you will stand before God. If He asks, "Why should I accept you into heaven instead of banishing you to an eternity in hell," what are you going to say?


I was a good person?
I wore a saffron robe?
I went to church and paid my tithes?
I read the Bible and tried to be as holy as I could?


Any of those answers will cause you to be rejected and sent to hell.
The only correct answer is, "I put my faith in Jesus."


You might have lived a good life, but without Jesus you can't be saved.
And who wants to be the best sinner that ever went to hell?

If you try to stand before God in your own goodness, you are going to come up short.   All of us have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. The only thing that will make you worthy to enter heaven is that Jesus paid for your sins, and you have claimed Him to be your Lord and Savior. You have to put your faith in the goodness of God through Jesus. Everyone who trusts in Jesus will be made in right standing with God. Anyone attempting to trust in their own goodness will never be able to live up to God's standard of perfection. The only way to have relationship with God is to have it through faith in Jesus.

Relationship with God is something you receive; it isn't something you earn. When you accept Jesus, you get changed on the inside—you are born again from above. Now, true Christianity does preach that you should live a good life, but a good life isn't the root of your relationship with God—it's the fruit of relationship with Him. You start living holy as a result of having a relationship with God, not as a means of obtaining it. Those are subtle distinctions, but the difference is profound, and it is what divides true Christianity from every other religion in this world.

Salvation and eternal life are all about Jesus. Some people try to say that Jesus was a great example of love, but that He is only one way to God. Jesus isn't a way; He is the only way to the Father. The Bible says,

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12 

To be in right relationship with God you have yield to Him. You have to submit yourself to Him in order to receive relationship.
