Spiritual Diet … 4 … GIGO … Good In Good Out
For the next few devotionals we will be examining what is “Good” based on Grace as I know it and have come to see it.
Another abbreviation of GIGO for me is “Gospel In Gospel Out.” The reason I bring this up here is that for many years in my life the “Good News” of the Gospel wasnt really that Great. I believe the passage below which is an exchange between Jesus, the religious leaders and the disciples, really sums up why this is the case for Many people today:
“You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:  “ ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.  They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules. ‘ ”  Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen and understand.  What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.” – Matthew 15:7-11
Take a serious look at what Jesus says here. He is talking about breaking the law. Jesus is talking about a Complete shift in thinking and the world Desperatly needs to hear it today again because most churches do Not teach this and this is the reason why churches in America are dying.
With this in mind here is a question for you:
What comes out of your mouth? I ask myself this on a moment to moment basis at times.
Am I offering Hope, Peace, Mercy and Love beyond human ability to comprehend?
You see Jesus came to the single most law observing, religious following and burdened people on the planet … to offer what?
“an easy burden and a light load”
What does that look like?
Over the next few devotionals on BeGraceFull.com we will look at that through the Spiritual Diet series. I Hope you will join me there but if you want to jump ahead the link below is a Great place to start examining this:
