“There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man.” Mark 7:15
You don’t have evil thoughts about others because they frustrate you. You do not avoid leisure time with your spouse because they don’t understand you. You do not hate strangers because they oppose you. You do not withhold good from others because it’s for their own good. You don’t have four of everything in case one breaks. You do not speak evil about people because they are evil. You do not doubt God because He claims Himself the Only True One. Your pride did not come from your accomplishments. You do not believe everything you say because you are all-knowing.
“All these evil things come from within and defile a man.” Mark 7:23
We were not contaminated. We are contaminated. It’s just a fact. A fact that God deals with through the cross. Go to Him, and He will cleanse your spirit from all unrighteousness. Believe Him, and He will not only forgive your sins…but bless you with everlasting life with Him.
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. john 3:19
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. john 3:16-17
My love to you in Christ Jesus!
