Becoming Clean

In our walk with Jesus, we need to:

  • Be transparent. Don’t try to mask your journey with Jesus.
  • Be authentic. Don’t just allow people in on your journey with Jesus, be real about it.
  • Be consistent. It’s difficult to be transparent and authentic if we aren’t consistent.

It is out of the overflow of the heart that we live life with Jesus. He isn’t interested in unconnected actions, but he is interested in the connectedness of our heart.

Digging Deeper

Want to get a little deeper into the study? Below are some questions and thoughts to consider based on the sermon message. Feel free to work through them on your own, as a family or in your small group. (Discussion questions for elementary-age kids can be found below.) If you have questions, please contact us.

Discussion Questions:

  • How would you describe the Pharisees and the teachers of the law? Is there a common day example of this group?
  • Why are the Pharisees frustrated with the disciples? What were they hoping to accomplish by asking Jesus about the disciples’ habits?
  • Why did Jesus rebuke the Pharisees? How were they being hypocritical? What does hypocrisy look like in Christianity today?
  • Jesus states that it is what comes out of the heart that makes a person pure. Why was this such a strong teaching to the Jews? What are the implications of this teaching to our walk with Jesus today?
  • How are our hearts connected to our relationship with Jesus? Read Proverbs 4:23. What does this verse tell us about the condition of our heart and the connection it has to our actions?
  • Read Luke 6:45. Our words and actions come from the overflow of our heart. Reflecting on your own life, how would you gauge the matter of your heart?
