Matthew 15:10-12 (New International Version)
10Jesus called the crowd to him and said, "Listen and understand. 11What goes into a man's mouth does not make him 'unclean,' but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him 'unclean.' "
12Then the disciples came to him and asked, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?"
It's Good Friday and most of the people are either fasting or getting rid of meat. The passage above is a revelation. I know that most Filipinos reflect and read the bible on holy week and I hope that it will also be revealed that Jesus died but He rose again and is alive and is to rule in our hearts. Jesus wants us to celebrate and experience His love, His salvation everyday, not only on Holy Week and Easter. We just need to seek Him and accept Him as our Savior. We need not do anything foolish like carry the cross or be nailed to it. God already gave His Son and He died for our sins. All we need to do is believe that Jesus is the only way.
