A few mornings ago as my husband headed out the door, I said, “Hey honey, want an apple to take with you? I was really surprised when he looked at me and said, “No! Those apples are horrible.” Hi. I was shocked. Organic. Firm to the touch. I decided to try it for myself. I took a bite and ugh, he was right. It was mushy on the inside. You know, it’s really not how we appear on the outside that counts as much as whether or not we have good on the inside. There’s only one person who can make us good on the inside and that’s Jesus. He provides transformational goodness as we repent of sin and yield to the Holy Spirit.
“First clean the inside of the cup and dish and the outside also will be clean.” Matthew 23:26
