Jesus calls us to ‘inside-out’ transformation which turns some ‘upside-down’.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Matthew 15:3 - Jesus replied, "And why do you, by your traditions, violate the direct commandments of God?
Read - Matthew 15:1–20; Mark 7:1–
Tradition are things we do often times simply because we became comfortable or complacent. When tradition seeps into our relationship with Christ we can find ourselves simply being religious without our hearts and minds truly being engaged and therefore transformed.
Lord, break any bonds of tradition in me that could keep me from Your best.
Read Romans 12:1-2 to get a glimpse of the internal change God asks.
Transformation (Morphing by the Holy Spirit) is only seen externally after it has had its full work internally. Let God do His full work in you so that your life resembles what He created you to be.
