“First wash the inside of the cup and then the outside will be clean also.” The problem with humanity is not that we don’t try to be good. Our problem is that, no matter what good things we might try to do, we aren’t good. Our problem is not external, but internal. We don’t need better actions; we need new hearts. In this passage, Jesus describes this problem and then shows us how people who are part of His family live.
