Have you ever thrown out a random question just to keep the conversation away from an uncomfortable (but perhaps important) topic?
Sometimes, we just need to clean up from one activity, before moving on to the next.
Aligning ourselves with Jesus requires a visible change in our lifestyle. No amount of claims can compensate for not trying to follow His instructions diligently.
Even if we look like we are sorry for what we have done, it doesn't really change anything if we don't work to also change our heart and our actions.
