Templates exist to guide us in specific tasks. Where there is a template for a task, deviations from it are not acceptable and the product of any effort outside of the template’s design and required content would be futile.
There is a template for relating to the Almighty God. He provided the template for our good and engagement. Any deviation from its guiding elements would not only be unacceptable and futile; it would be punished with the punishment that is prescribed by the Almighty for such disobedience and misconduct
No matter how hard we try to please God, we can never align completely with His Will without using the template that He has provided.
Find out the template of God for your salvation and purpose and follow them religiously. Your fulfillment and eternal destiny depend on that.
