Is Jesus on the inside...

Christ Penetrating (Illustration source unknown)

Matthew 23:27 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed

tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness.

In the movie Godfather III, Mafia chief Michael Corleone meets with Cardinal

Lamberto, reporting to the Cardinal that executives from the Vatican bank and even an Archbishop, have been involved in a massive case of fraud.

After hearing this news Cardinal Lamberto moves to a water fountain, withdraws a stone and says:

"Look at this stone. It has been lying in the water for a very long time,

but the water has not penetrated it."

He breaks the stone in two, shows the inside to Don Michael and continues,

"Look. Perfectly dry. The same thing has happened to men in Europe. For centuries they have been surrounded by Christianity, but Christ has not penetrated. Christ doesn't breathe within them."

Just a scene from a movie? Unfortunately, we have all seen those who are seeped in Christianity yet, like the rock, are still "dry" on the inside. It's not enough to talk like a Christian, to go to church, to do good things. We must be soaked on the inside with Christ, with Jesus breathing within us.

So, are your insides wet or dry?

Jesus said, except a man is born of the water and the Spirit he cannot enter in to the kingdom of God or Heaven, Jesus also said, he that believes and is baptized will be saved but he that does not believe will be damned.

Jesus said if you take His yoke upon and learn about Him, for He is meek and lowly in heart and you will finds rest for your souls. Do you want rest for your soul? Yes or No?

Will you be baptized for the remission of sins? Yes or No?

Please confirm any of these truths with Jesus of Nazareth and direct any comment or questions below:
