God has blessed me to pastor a church that is full of eligible young people who are primed for marriage, so I am very excited to share this Scripture with you, as it will give you a revelation that will prepare you for the most enjoyable life and marriage that is possible: “Then the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees make the outside of the cup and dish clean, but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness. Foolish ones! Did not He who made the outside make the inside also? But rather give alms of such things as you have; then indeed all things are clean to you.” What Jesus is saying is that when you clean the inside, the outside becomes beautiful automatically.
Oh this is incredible to think that changing your internal self actually gives you a life-long makeover! Believe me, this is not something that you can do by reading some self-help book or taking a professional counseling session. It can only be done through the power of the Holy Spirit living inside of you ~ which actually makes it easier than any other process developed by man.
The Holy Spirit is the internal software that is programmed into your spirit. When you are filled with the gift of the Holy Spirit, it operates similar to the programing on your smart phone. As you interact with others ~ personally conversing with them, meeting with them, or simply speaking on the phone ~ your internal software of the Holy Spirit can help you to properly respond if you let it.
You activate the Holy Spirit software by praying in other tongues ~ sometimes under your breath while you are at work or busy meeting with others ~ you are silently praying in the Spirit. The amazing thing about the spiritual activity is that it also has incredible side effects ~ but they are not negative. In fact, they are so positive they can remake the outer surface of your body to appear friendly relaxed and youthful!
How amazing is that?
As a pastor in San Francisco I have watched this happen time and time again on the faces of different people who have been in incredibly negative situations, and then have turned their lives over to be completely controlled by the Holy Spirit. Suddenly they look beautiful, happy, casual, relaxed, and best of all enjoying life itself. So it’s time for you to let the Holy Spirit do a makeover on your face by cleansing the thoughts and intents of your heart. When He cleans the inside the outside will be bright and shiny by itself.
