Sermon Series: Spiritual and Religious
Sermon Title: Jesus Was Religious
Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Amos 5:21-24; Matthew 23:1-7, 27-28; James 1:26-27
A few years ago a video about Jesus being opposed to religion went viral on the internet, as it resonated with a lot of “spiritual but not religious” people, even many Christians. But contrary to pop-culture, Jesus wasa religious Jew. He was shaped by the Scriptures, a confession (creed), a religious calendar, and other religious habits. Jesus didn’t oppose religion, he opposed hypocrisy. In Jesus Was Religious (3 of 7), Pastor David shows how Jesus embraced religion and wants us to do the same. If we want to be properly formed and pass on our faith, we must be religious like Jesus.
