  1. Our Story with God is a story of a Journey from Religion to Relationship

  2. When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: "Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!“ Luke 19:37-39 (NIV)

  3. The Priests & Pharisees had Religion

  4. Religion is about Rules Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written: "'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.  They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.” Mark 7:6-7 (NIV)

  5. Religion is about Rituals Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others. Matthew 23:23 (NASB)

  6. Religion is about Routine If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and then the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation. John 11:48 (NIV)

  7. God wants a Relationship

  8. Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. John 17:3 (NIV)

  9. Knowing God brings Peace As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, "If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace--but now it is hidden from your eyes. Luke 19:41-42 (NIV)

  10. Knowing God brings Purity Then he entered the temple area and began driving out those who were selling. Luke 19:45 (NIV)

  11. Knowing God brings Prayer "It is written," he said to them, "'My house will be a house of prayer'; but you have made it 'a den of robbers.'" Luke 19:46 (NIV)

  12. I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord... I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ  and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ--the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.  I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection. Philippians 3:8-10 (NIV)
