I hear and understand what you are saying. Believing in Jesus and accepting that He died for your sins and my sins is the very crux of the Gospel. Knowing how much I am loved and accepted by the Lord really draws me into an ongoing interactive relationship with Him. I often talk with Him in the midst of the activities of the day, tell him about the big decisions and involve Him when I have lost my car keys. He is there ALL the time. That still amazes me. Because Jesus is the Living Word of God, I have enjoyed reading the written Word of God in the Bible -- and I talk to Him about ideas I read and things He did on earth. <br />

You are right, it is not about a "religion" but a person and He wants to walk and talk with us through out the day. Religion is more about what a person does, Jesus is about what He did that we might have life. I love chatting with Him in the midst of life and I am amazed at how much He cares and interacts with me and the pathway of life.
