Inside Out

November 22, 2020

Bible Text: Mark 7:14-22 |


We continue listening to the words of Jesus as he speaks to his cantankerous enemies and his confused followers. A common belief in the day and culture was that certain foods eaten made a person spiritually and ritually unclean. Jesus looks to get them to realize it’s not what you put inside the body that makes one unclean, but rather what comes out of a person’s heart that makes one unclean. The Bible tells us that the human heart is deceitful above all things. That alone ought to convince us that hope for humanity is not found in a new environment or a new system of education, or a new government. Hope for humanity lies in a new heart, which Jesus alone can give.
