Wednesday Message 1-20-21

Wednesday Greetings,

Mark 7:14-16
"Then Jesus called the crowd again and said to them, "Listen to me, all of you, and understand:  there is nothing outside a person that by going in can defile, but the things that come out are what defile."

We do know that eating a bunch of junk food all the time isn't good for you.  It actually isn't good for you any time in any amount. but.....

that's not what Jesus is talking about here.

Jesus is talking about what we do with our lives.

There will always be all sorts of things around us to take into our lives, but what we do with them is what's really important.   It's what comes out of us that shows what we have done with what comes into us.

Some things that come into us are best expressed as waste products.

The things of God.... love, light, kindness, faithfulness, those are the things that are to flow out of us.

God has not only given us bodies to filter the bad stuff, God has given us souls, hearts, minds to filter the bad stuff, to turn evil into good, to express the love of God in Christ in all we do and say.

What comes out of you shows the world what you believe about God.

So, what's coming out of you?

Peace in our journeys,
Pastor Steve Melde
