What does it mean to be moral? Most people think that to be a moral person or to be a good person has everything to do with how you interact with other people. In other words, it has to do with your external behavior. But, Christians believe that it is actually more than that. Christians believe that to be a moral person has everything to do with not only who you are externally, but also who you are internally. You may be treating others well on the outside, but do you have peace in your heart in the quiet moments? A modern poet once asked, “Will I ever find silence without mental violence?”. Is your heart at rest in the quiet moments? Do you really have peace in your life? You see, a relationship with Jesus not only promises to change what you do, but it also promises changes who you are. And, therefore it is only through Christ that we can truly be moral.
