What defiles us?
Good morning brothers and sisters. I was recently on Tik Tok and I had to get off. I was on the videos of people speaking about the Lord. But it so saddened my heart even for "Christian Tik Tok". One would say this and one would say that. If I was not a Christ follower, I would have been so confused as to what was actually in the Bible. Now don't get me wrong, there are some who do preach the whole and nothing but the truth. But mostly it was what to do and not to do. I had to delete that social media. And if I am sad, then how does God feel. So I was studying and this is what I read and the whole thing made sense. Matthew 15:17-18. 17- Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? 18- But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart and they defile a man. Those words are written in red so therefore, Jesus spoke them. It is not the do's and don'ts that defile us. It is our very own hearts that defiles us and the words we speak. I am not saying one was right over the other but what I am saying is I can see why no one wants to follow Jesus. The words that come out of so many Christians mouths is confusing and yes sometimes out right mean. This is why I study so my words are seasoned with Christ. I don't want to add to the confusion. I just want them to see Jesus in me and know Him. So before you speak, let the words go through the Holy Spirit and then it will be the words of Jesus. Have a blessed day and rise up child of God, rise up.
