Relationship Not Religion
“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.” John 4:23 (NIV)
Jesus ushered in the new covenant of worshiping God, not through a religion, but through a relationship. As we search the pages of Scripture we see Jesus was the fulfillment of the letter of the law because the old covenant pointed to Him. In Jesus, we worship God through our relationship with Him, not through religious laws, ordinances, or rituals.
It is possible for religious activities to help point a person to a relationship with the Lord, but all men can find that relationship with the Lord, directly. So spend time with Him in prayer, the study of His word, and fellowship with others doing the same.
Let’s pray today to be in the Bible and conscientious of its pointing toward Christ.
