Here is an excellent sermon from pastor, Alistair Begg of Truth For Life. He explains the difference between religion and rebirth, relationship with the Risen Lord, Jesus Christ: being guided and indwelt by the Very Spirit of God as opposed to walking in the flesh and “playing Christian.”
Begg’s ministry has been a tremendous blessing in my walk with Christ: his Biblically grounded, no-nonsense, compassionate approach to teaching is powerful.
Please check it out. Much blessing, love, peace,purpose and hope in Christ Jesus our Only Lord and Savior! Our Lord lives, reigns and shall return: it’s not “religion:” all about a relationship with the Risen Lord!
Father God, much thanks for all You have done, do, and will do! Praise You Lord , Jesus Christ for dying for me, for suffering so I could live and live in abundance. We pray Dear Lord that we would not be religious, we are led by You Living God. Relationship, rebirth, life itself is You. please guide, lead, direct. please draw people to Yourself away from religion and nonsense: please use us as advocates to point to the Only Savior the Lord Jesus Christ in all we say and do. For Your glory, honor and praise, Lord Jesus. Amen
