How important is Jesus Christ in your life?

He is an extremely vital part of my everyday. I can not live without him.

Jesus is the centre of my existence. He is the reason that I exist. He is the reason that I am going to spend eternity with Him.
Being a good person is not enough, because no matter how good we are, 'all still fall short of the glory of God.' And our personal view of what is good is different to someone elses, so no human can really judge what is or is not good. Only God, as the ultimate in goodness and holiness, can judge.
Also, the idea that God would just allow 'good' people who have not followed Jesus is something of, to be harsh, a delusion. God sent Jesus, 'so that all might be saved.' He wants to save everyone - good and bad, not just a select few. Many of the good and bad choose to follow him; many of the good and the bad choose not to. Getting into heaven is NOT ABOUT BEING A GOOD PERSON. Jesus said that he did not come for good people, but for sinners.
If being a Christian was about just being a good person, then there wouldn't be much point to it. And plenty of Christians are not good people - because God is still working in them and they are fighting their own desires to sin.
CS Lewis wrote "The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us." He also wrote that, if a person who is a Christian does not come across as a good person, then you must imagine how much worse they would be if they were not a Christian!

Religion has no part in my Life.
However, living my Life as a Good, Kind and Generous person is VERY Important to me.

Jesus Christ came to redeem mankind from slavery of sin. Man cannot save himself without help from Jesus Christ who the son of God.

He is the most important part of my life - the reason for my being. He has a plan for me, a destiny. I am grateful to be alive and share the Gospel.

I am not religious at all. I think it's great that some people are though. For me, I believe that I will just try and be a good person. I will help people out when they need it. I will donate time and money to help others. But the truth for me is, there are so many religions out there. How do I know what is the right one? If there is a "God" out there (which there may well be, I don't know), will he turn me away for being a good person? I feel like if everyone followed this, there would be less war. I know so many people who go to church and lecture their religion but don't always follow it and aren't really "good" people. They don't try and help others. I thought the point of religion was helping others. I feel like religion has caused too many fights. I do admire those who are religious and follow their beliefs but do not push them on others. I think that is amazing.
