Mark - Come Follow Me (part 4)

Will Sohnchen

It's springtime in the Okanagan. It's a beautiful time of year. After the long winter, things are growing again. It's also a time when people start to get busy with their "spring cleaning."

In Jesus' day, the religious leaders were very concerned with how clean people looked on the outside. They had many rituals that dealt with ceremonial cleansing. In Mark chapter 7, Jesus reminds us that moral and spiritual cleansing begins on the inside of a person. It begins with the heart. That's why the Bible give us this instruction, "guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life." This morning we will take some time to allow God to do some "spiritual heart cleaning."
