How Healthy Is Your Heart?
Is your heart healthy? Does your heart need a cleansing? You have tried all the self-help books and even attended seminars but to no avail? Do you constantly find yourself think evil thoughts and you have done everything humanly possible but find yourself succumbing to these evil thoughts? It is as if you are in a constant battle with an evil force over the thoughts that come into your heart. Jesus said in Mark 7:20-23 “…What comes out of a person - that defiles him. From within, out of people’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immoralities, thefts, murders, adulteries, greed, evil actions, deceit, lewdness, stinginess, blasphemy, pride and foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a person.” Does what comes from your heart represent a picture of the above scenario? If so, then your heart will be described as ‘unhealthy’. Any unhealthy thing needs to be cleansed before it can be used. According to Hebrews 10:19-22, there is a need to enter into the Most Holy Place by drawing near to God with a sincere heart so that our hearts may be cleansed by the Blood of Jesus Christ and have our iniquities blotted out. You might declare, you have it covered! Friend, a physician cannot heal himself but needs to go to another physician to accurately diagnose the problem with him and offer a cure. Jesus Christ the Great Physician is saying that for your heart to be healed and healthy again, all you need is to humble yourself by having His word in your heart and have them written on your minds. Psalm 25:9 says “He leads the humble in what is right and teaches them His way.” All you need to do is come, draw near to Him, He will not only teach you, He will write His Word in your heart. The question now is: how far or near to Him are you? The more you draw near, the healthier your heart will be! Humble yourself and draw near to Jesus Christ, you will be pleasantly surprised!!!
