It is easy to get caught in the externals. Beware of those who emphasize things we should or shouldn’t do, with no concern for the inward condition of the heart. Living a “good” life without an inward change leads to a spiritual walk that is shallow and empty. What matters to God is that we be completely changed from the inside out. Read 2 Corinthians 5:17 – When someone becomes a Christian, they become a brand new person inside. They are not the same any more. A new life has begun!
