As Christians many of us find it difficult to think of religion as exciting. Many of us associate religion with attending a church service which automatically invokes the feeling of reflection, prayer and reverence. It is a serious place where giddiness, euphoria and having fun are not allowed, and isnít that what excitement is?
Well, perhaps that view of religion is too narrow. We never think about helping somebody in need as religion or of sharing your knowledge or teaching as religion, or of making sacrifices for a child, spouse or a parent as religion, or of giving of your time as religion, or of being loving, tolerant and patient as religion.
Yet, those are all examples of living a life directed by the tenets of our faith, a faith based on Jesusí life and teachings, and it is in doing any of those things, where we experience the excitement of doing Christís work.
Jesusí teaching are not just part of our religion Ė they are our religion.
