Inside Out

I’m Dr. Bob, and for just a Mentoring Minute, I want set the record straight. God never designed us to be shallow, superficial Christians. His plan was never to have lukewarm people in lukewarm churches. When we were born again, He changed us on the inside, so we could shine on the outside. In other words, He turned us inside out! He fashioned us to carry a deep, fiery zeal for Him, His Word and His work. Knowing this has caused me to understand the value of growing on the inside. Beyond that, it has given me an awareness of my need to fan the flames He put in me. (Ephesians 5:8-10 NLT) says, “For though your hearts were once full of darkness, now you are full of light from the Lord, and your behavior should show it! {9} For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true. {10} Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord.” If God can get you growing on the inside, He knows you will be glowing on the outside. Take that to heart. If necessary, turn your thinking inside out, so it matches what God has done with your eternal destiny. Then, determine never to reverse the process. Keep growing on the inside. If you will, you can be sure you will be glowing on the outside. I’m Dr. Bob. That’s a Mentoring Minute that will light up your life and those around you.  You can listen to additional Mentoring Minutes at
