Unoccupied

Matthew 12:43-45

These verses demonstrate the vanity of self-improvement without God.  Self-improvement is a bankrupt religion.  the Jewish religion made them look better on the outside, but the inside was a barren lifeless dead heart.  Jesus is teaching that your works have not changed your fleshly heart.  You need more than a remodel job, you need a new house.  Paul was a man devoted to self-improvement but soon discovered that it was a pile of garbage.  The story here is that an unclean spirit goes out of a person which is most likely due to the efforts of the person.  The person has made great strides in his lifestyle, but his heart has not changed.  Who is dwelling in your heart?
