Matthew 15: 7 - 9
7 Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:
‘These people [c]draw near to Me with their mouth,
And honor Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ ”
It is all about the heart!
So often people have made their way to a physical building they call “church”, stayed a couple of hours and gone back home unchanged. When asked what they did while there they will reply “We had church!”
It’s not about “having church”. The question is, “Is the Church in you?” Does Jesus truly have the deed to your heart?
