From The Inside Out

Jesus wants to change you from the inside out.
I’ve travelled a fair bit, and there’s large parts of the world that have a custom I’m not really comfortable with. It’s the custom of leaving your shoes at the door so you don’t bring dirt from the street inside the house. It’s required across Asia, Middle-Eastern Countries, Eastern Europe, and all the Nordic countries.
Of course, I agree that it’s a good idea to keep your house clean. It’s just that when I take my shoes off, I typically get horrific hay fever!
Jesus taught that it’s not what comes into your life that contaminates you. He actually called this kind of thinking stupid. Jesus said that it’s what comes out of our own hearts that the problem.
And if you think about it, you’ll realise that Jesus was right. It’s your thinking that determines your behaviour. Change your thoughts and you’ll change your life. Remember: Jesus wants to change you from the inside out.
