Episode 104: What Is Going On Inside Of You? There is a certain representation of Christianity that almost focuses exclusively focuses on our behavior. While the bible is clear on what it means to live outwardly in alignment with the heart of God and the ways of God, following Jesus by faith is not primarily about modifying our behavior. We are not a rules-driven people as the Church of Jesus Christ. Christian activity flows from Christian identity –and identity is internal. The spirit of religion seeks to modify external behavior with little to no regard for the internal atmosphere of a person. If we can understand that God works on us from the inside out, we will be better positioned to live lives externally that bring Him glory and bring us deep contentment. One clear verse from the writings of the Apostle Paul helps us to see the deep need to prioritize what is happening inside of us (our spirit) while remaining committed to honoring the Lord with external actions (our bodies). This need to diagnoseour own heartsand align our own personal spiritwith the Holy Spiritis the subject of today’s episode of #MavericksAndMisfits.
