NOT INTERESTED IN RELIGION

READ
John 5:18, 37-47



How often I wanted to gather your children, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!
-Matthew 23:37

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
Psalm 140-142
1 Corinthians 14:1-20

A radio ad for a church caught my attention: ”Because you’ve heard about Christianity, you might not be interested in religion. Well, it might surprise you - Jesus wasn’t interested in religion either;but He was big on relationship and teaching us to love one another.” It continued,
“You may not like everything about our church but we offer authentic relationship, and we’re learning to love God and each other.You’re welcome to visit.”
This church may have overstated things about Jesus and religion because scripture does speak of “true religion” in James 1:27 as helpful deeds toward others. But Jesus did have difficulties with religious people of His day. He said the Pharisees, guided by tradition and rules and not by love for the Lord, ”outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside(they) are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness”(Matthew 23:28). They didn’t have the love of God in their hearts (John 5:42). Jesus wanted a relationship with them, but they were ”not willing to come to [Him]”(v40).
If being ”religious” means following a set of rules so that we can look good - instead of enjoying a relationship with the Saviour - Jesus isn’t interested. He offers forgiveness and love to all who want an intimate relationship with Him. - Anne Cetas
True religion is to know
The love that Christ imparts;
True religion is to show
This love to burdened hearts - D.DeHaan


There is a longing in every heart that only Jesus can satisfy.

BE STRONG
Open Heavens

by Pastor E.A Adeboye

BE STRONG

You don’t charge someone to be strong if there is no task to be performed or if pressure is not required, either for motion or putting up resistance against an opposing force. In the physical realm, mere movement requires strength. This explains why a sick person or a person just recovering from an ailment finds...More
