JAN 7 – SELF

01/07 Luke 11:37-40
As Jesus was speaking, one of the Pharisees invited him home for a meal. So he went in and took his place at the table. 38 His host was amazed to see that he sat down to eat without first performing the ceremonial washing required by Jewish custom. 39 Then the Lord said to him, “You Pharisees are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are still filthy — full of greed and wickedness! 40 Fools! Didn’t God make the inside as well as the outside?
SELF
The Pharisees saw God as someone to control. Their life was focused on what people saw and they totally ignored the inner life. The Lord calls us to be filled with the Spirit. The Spirit of God will lead us into the right way. Do not be fooled you cannot control God for that is a sin. Surrender you life to Jesus and let Him lead you in the right way.
