Jesus new, Jesus Knew – 4
Did Jesus commit suicide? Where does He live now for those who believe?
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.” Matthew 23:25-26
Faith in Christ Alone cleans the inside of you, you are the cup. Law cleans the outside of you, you are the cup – Which do you choose?
Jesus time and again made one Spiritual Truth Very Plain for all who had ears – GOD LOVES YOU AS YOU ARE, NOT AS YOU “should be” And with the sacrifice of Christ that distance between man and God was Forever bridged!
Jesus knew that by cleaning up our act and “acting right” we would have our focus on us and Not on others who desperately need our love, compassion and acceptance. We could never accept someone who was “bad” according to whatever we considered “bad” to be – but If Christ Is your Only goodness then the “inside of the cup” is clean and the outside will be clean because of it!
