At Jacob’s Well we are focusing on UnLearning these days. (Earlier blog on unlearning) And since we are a church we need to start at home, so it was UnLearn Religion. God wants us to UnLearn it so we can ReLearn Relationship.
I want your constant love, not your animal sacrifices. I would rather have my people know me than burn offerings to me. Hosea 6.6 (TEV)
Something that spoke ‘convictingly’ (is that a word?) to me that I shared was this simple distinction between religion and relationship, between being a Christian and following Jesus. It is this,
“Being a follower of Jesus means that you give up deciding where you will apply Jesus to your life, and instead discover where Jesus wants to take you.”
That is a scary concept that I hope to get good at!
