Inside Job

January 20, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. …First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.”
Matthew 23:25-26

This verse reminds me of what is important in my relationship with Jesus: how I treat others and how I treat myself. In everyday language, the question is: does my walk match my talk? When I am more concerned with image over substance, I can see myself as the old Pharisee, looking good on the outside while ignoring the truth on the inside. I think many of us get that and many of us get this—recovery is an inside job and if we don’t put Jesus first, we will continue to live the life of an imposter, poser and actor. We will continue to suffer from our hurts, habits and hang-ups.

God loves you; Jesus died for you; His spirit lives in you! Say “Yes” to Jesus!

If you’re stuck in a hurt, habit, or hang-up, check out Celebrate Recovery at Crossroads Church. We meet every Friday night, starting at 6pm.
