And he said, THAT WHICH COMETH OUT of the man, that DEFILETH THE MAN. For from within, OUT OF THE HEART of men, PROCEED EVIL thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, AND DEFILE THE MAN. Mark 7:20-23. Yup, we all know that's talking about the other guy, the unbeliever, the man still living in and part of this world. This is obviously not talking about us Christians because we don't do those things anymore. We have been Saved by the Blood of Christ, Justified, and Sanctified, we're in good shape, THAT'S NOT US. Sorry guys, this IS exactly us, the Christians, the Believers of Christ, IN ALL OUR GLORY. I'll explain. You're doing all the right things a good Christian should do, praying, Bible reading and study, going to 3 Services a week, and all the rest of those good things. ( If this is as far as you go, this is actually spiritually hypocrisy). The thinking here is, "I'm a good Christian, it's other people who sin like that". No, you're NOT a "good person", you're still a wretched sinner, WHO HAS BEEN SAVED AND FORGIVEN OF ALL YOUR SINS BY AND THROUGH JESUS CHRIST AND HIS BLOOD. Here's a test for you. Your Walk with the Lord is outstanding and out of nowhere you find yourself looking at porn on the computer. You're ashamed and embarrassed and don't even want to face the Lord with this sudden sin. You don't understand where this came from, SO FOR A WHILE, YOU DON'T TALK TO THE LORD. This is exactly where and why you should RUN TO the Lord, YOU STILL HAVE SIN IN YOUR HEART AND THE LORD IS DIGGING IT OUT, for you to face, and let Him deal with it. THIS IS GOoD, He's Cleansing you and Purifying your heart. THIS is what Christ died and Paid for, for you to be made into His Likeness, one sin removal at a time. Let Him do His Work in you, as you do your work through Him, and, Be Blessed.
