” A man is not a Jew if he is only one outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical.” Rom 2:28
In this Year 2018, do not waste time in hypocritical outward showy things. Mean what you say and say what you mean. Relate with God with all your heart – for he sees every detail and cannot be mocked. A decision to follow Jesus must be both outwardly declared and inwardly lived and maintained with a heart obedient to the Gospel.
