Are You Considering Religion? Reconsider.

This may seem a little strange coming from a pastor, but if it is religion that you are looking for my friend, I exhort, please reconsider.

Do’s and Don’ts will never make one pleasing to God, not to mention, that one could never do or not do enough to satisfy God. He gave clear cut evidence of this when he gave us His law.

For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second, but the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God. Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

So in order for one to even attempt to live for God, shall most assuredly end in religious futility, to which God is not looking for at all. One will only find this sort of religious rite will only draw one near unto God with their lips, only to find their heart far from Him. This my friend is the crux of the matter… the heart.

So God showed us the fault was with them, us, you, me….  our hearts.

For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: Hebrews 8:8-10

You see my friend the problem was not with the law (God’s rules and regulation) it is with the heart of the individual. It is desperately wicked and deceitful above all things. God wants to transform our hearts and mind.

God is not wanting to change our actions, He is wanting to change our will, our hearts, our mind so that they are liken to our precious Lord. The actions will supernaturally follow. By the mercies of God, present your body a living sacrifice, not conforming to this world or to religion, but by a transforming of the mind and that by His word.

Don’t look for religion. Receive His Christ…. Yeshua ha Massicah
