Jesus v. Religion

February 4, 2018 Speaker: Kevin Deyette Series: Sermon on the Mount

Passage: Matthew 5:17–5:20

Title: Jesus v. Religion
Text:
Matthew 5:17-20

Notes:

God’s looking for a changed heart, not behavior modification.

Fulfill: accomplish the full meaning of Scripture.

  • Righteousness still matters

The more you relax God’s word, the more you rob yourself of the joy Christ has for you.

  • A lackadaisical approach to holiness teaches your belief about God.

Christianity is not about getting your life into shape, it’s about letting your heart be changed.

  • Religion focuses on changing your behavior, Christianity focuses on loving and following God.

The Kingdom of God belongs to those who trust in Jesus’ righteousness, instead of their own.
