After the crowd had been put outside, he went in……………. Matthew 9:25
Picture this. A good amount of people, the crowd, were inside. After which, the crowd had been put outside. Then Jesus went in.
This scene gives me some questions;
What is inside my heart which occupies a good large space?
What is inside my life which gets most of my time?
What is inside my mind which secures a great part of my memory?
What is inside my soul which controls the way I breathe, speak, and live?
Jesus must come in. Jesus must enter in. Jesus must take His place.
I must put out anything that hinders Jesus to come in.
I must let go of anything that blocks Jesus from taking His rightful throne in me.
I must sweep out anything that prevents Jesus in blessing my life.
I must drive out away anything that limits Jesus from working in me.
Anything – ambition, selfish motives, pride, earthly desires, habitual unholy actions, worries, disappointments, etc.
Crowd is inside. Jesus is outside. Not my option.
Crowd is outside. Jesus is inside. My vocation.
