Not religion

Yesterday we began a series called Renegade at Hub City Church. I've been a bit overwhelmed at the response to the message. Since it was so meaningful to so many I wanted to highlight the main point.

Christianity is not a religion. It's about a relationship with God that is defined by faith.

  • People like religion because it is safe and predictable. But a relationship with God is anything but safe and predictable. 
  • A relationship with God leads us to a renegade life where we throw off conventional behavior and abandon our religious approaches to God.
  • God is inviting you and I to abandon our religion and pursue a relationship with him.

Memorize Hebrews 11:6 - It is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
