From Religion to Relationship

29 August 2021

Book: John

Bible Passage: John 3:1-21

Last time we met, we saw Jesus, a passionate Prince of Peace overthrowing the money tables and casting out those that sold animals and exchanged money in the Temple of God. Jesus’ zealousness shone brightly on that day. God’s house was to be a house of prayer and not merchandise.
As you can imagine this caused quite a stir and an uproar. Though there were some that immediately challenged Jesus in the Temple, it also sparked a fire in the heart of another man, a Pharisee, a high-ranking Pharisee, a ruler of the Jews.
We pick up the account in John 3 this evening.
As we begin tonight, I want to challenge you to understand that we all must move beyond mere religion and journey into a true relationship with Jesus Christ. This passage of Scripture, is not just for salvation, but for the life of all Christians.
