Jesus demands that I get my life in order before I can see God in a real way. He knows it is not about what I look like or what I own.
It is all about changing my mind (repent) about who is in charge and loving God in every way I can. We must love each other. That is what matters.
May my mind and heart be right with God.
You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.”
~~Jesus (Matthew 5:8 The Message)
