It’s an Indoor and Outdoor Life

Indoors-outdoorsGod tells the Jewish nation to put a Mezuzah on the door frame of their houses. It contains two portions of Scripture, one about who their God is and another about loving their Lord through their obedience. He also tells them not to wear clothes with two different kinds of threads. It was one type of thread and one type only. In other another place, God tells them not to plant two kinds of seeds in one field. For example, they were not to grow wheat in the middle of their vineyards.
A picture that emerges is that they are to love their God everywhere they go in life – whether that’s at home or at work, inside the house our outside the house. And the clothes on their back are to be a constant reminder to worship one God through their single devotion to Him.
Today, the believer must fight the lie that they are to leave their faith at the door of their house or house of worship. This thought did not come from the first half of the Book, nor is it repeated in the second half. In fact, Colossians 3:17 states just the opposite, “Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus.”
Whether we’re indoors or outdoors, we are to love express our love for Jesus through listening to and following Jesus everyday everywhere. The only way to avoid the consequences of our bad choices and experience the good stuff of our obedience is to walk every where we go using our biblical tools.
