It's all about the heart!
Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. John 14 v 23
God has been speaking to me about the state of our hearts and how we need to be in love with the author of The Book. It made me think of my own heart and whether I am passionate about the things God is passionate about.
The human heart is one of the most important organs in the body. Blood flows at three feet per second as it exits the heart, and its continuous flow is essential for the rest of the body. Unfortunately, blockages can occur causing circulation to slow or even stop in a heart attack. Our spiritual heart can also have blockages in the form of sin and disobedience. It stops the flow of the Holy Spirit through our bodies, preventing us living the life God intended for us. You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ (Romans 8 v 9).
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own(1 Cor v 6 v 19). We need to take
care of our bodies, especially our hearts. So that Christ may dwell in [our] hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ (Eph 3 v 17 - 18).
Are you looking after your heart?
Are you passionate about what God is passionate about?
Ask God to show you if there are any blockages (sin) that is stopping you from fully experiencing God's love?
