DON'T LET ANYONE FORCE YOU INTO THEIR SPIRITUAL MOLD
Most people get nervous when you talk about spiritual birth.
Spiritual birth is a confusing subject, and people have a lot of questions. How much theology do you need to know? How many scriptures do you need to read? Do you need to pray extra hard for a long time to make it happen? Are there any formulas you have to follow? Are there any special words you need to say? Do you need to say them in any particular order? Is there is special place you need to go to make it happen? Can you do it with your eyes open, or do they have to be closed?
All of these questions focus on you, seducing you into believe that spiritual birth is something you do, instead of something that God does to you.
The truth is, God is the one who does it all. He is the one who makes it happen. As soon as you open your heart to his love and call him Father, He does all the rest.
He isn't going to ask you to write an essay to find out if you really know what you are doing. He isn't going to give you a multiple choice test asking one-hundred questions on theology, and if you don't score at least seventy percent, you don't get to call him Father. He won't ask for a personal interview or references from religious people. He won't demand that you are perfect before you can have a relationship. He won't require that you don't sin for three days in a row before it can happen.
God's love is unconditional, and that means there are no preconditions to having a personal relationship with him.
Your relationship with God is a personal thing, and it's going to be different for you than it will be for other people. God made you different from everyone else, and your relationship with him will be different as well.
It's not my relationship or someone else's relationship. It's yours. When God made you, He threw away the mold, and your relationship with him will be personal and unique.
Don't let anyone force you into their spiritual mold. You will not fit, and you will be miserable if you try to be like them and have a spiritual relationship that duplicates theirs. If God wanted all of us to be the same, He would have made us all the same. We would all be clones. God didn't do it, and you shouldn't try to do it either.
