John 14:1-3; 15-27

Perhaps you’ve heard the common saying, “Christianity isn’t about rules; it’s about relationship.” There is certainly some truth in this saying. We can never win our salvation by following rules. We need to be reconciled to God through faith in Jesus Christ. There is also, though, something very misleading about this saying. For, as we will see today, disciplining ourselves to know and obey God’s commands is one of the surest ways of experiencing a deeper relationship with God.
