No one can have a “relationship” with God without Jesus Christ. “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also'” (John 14:6-7 NKJV). More to the point, Jesus had said, “he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me” (John 13:20 NKJV). Many people are taught that all they must do to have a relationship with God is pray. But Jesus said, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him” (John 14:23 NKJV). There is no spiritual relationship with God without Jesus Christ, and there is no spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ without obeying His Word.
