WELCOME to our Matthew exploration.
Imagine someone who is doing the right religious routines on the outside—he goes to church, reads his Bible, prays his prayers—so everyone says, “That guy is close to God.”
But in reality, deep inside, he’s far from God. His heart is blocked by evil. Because of the calcified deposits of pride, selfishness, lust, and greed in his spiritual arteries, God’s Love cannot flow in and out of his life. And when God’s Love cannot enter our heart, our life is in mortal danger.
Talk 3 of our Feast series Side A/Side B is titled Soiled Lips and Distant Hearts because it is about the difference between what you are saying and what’s really in your heart.
The key message of Talk 3: Check your heart.
