The bible says “This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile” (Romans 3:22, NIV)
God appreciates faithfulness. Abraham was an example.
Abraham was somebody who never hesitated in anything he did, from offering sacrifice to showing appreciation for the blessing he had received.
It is not just about how religious you have been.
So don’t be surprised if someone who is not as pure as
you is getting along very well because they exercise faith.
It pays to trust God even in the toughest of times. Putting on a worship song and dancing your hearts out after you have just been laid off work is not a laughing matter but this is actually something that can move God.
It takes practice to get consistent at this. See it this way.
How much worse can it get?
