Thanks, for the reminder,Terry.
Matthew 23, Jesus really rips into the Pharisees for their man-made laws.
vv 25-26 hit hard at their cleanliness fettish:
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean."
We need to be clean from the inside out, and only His blood can do (and has done) that for us.
