Clean The Right Side First
MARCH 03, 2022
Daily Reading – Numbers 5-6 / Mark 7
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Mark 7:18-19 And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him; Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
Why is it that many come into church, stay awhile, and then leave and go back into the world? Well, there may be many reasons, but Jesus spoke of a main one here in this passage. It just may be that we have focused on cleaning up the wrong side first.
You see what we view on a person’s outside, is not nearly as important as what God sees. Cleaning up a person’s appearance, vocabulary, habits, etc., will only go so far in life if their heart has never been changed. However, once their heart is given over to Christ, then God will make of them a new creature. And friend, He does a much better job of that than we do.
