This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far away from Me.
One of the scariest thoughts as a Christian is that this statement could sum up how God views me.
Just stop. And think on that for a moment.
Do I just do the outward actions for the sake of it? Supposing that the outward action, on it’s own, is enough?
If I do, then I am in trouble.
The alternative is that my heart is genuinely changed and moved by God.
The heart is what matters. Where your heart is, is a true indicator of where your life is with God.
- Is your heart, and therefore your life, where God wants it to be, or not?
- Is there a desire within to know Jesus, to walk with Him?
- Is there a willingness to submit to Him and put Him and His will first?
Summed up, these are the critical questions we all need to ask.
If our heart is not in the right place before God, then we have two choices. 1) To get our hearts right before God or 2) quit the outward activity altogether. It is easy to just quit, but if you do that, the problem still remains. God doesn’t have your heart and it’s your heart that He wants!
Give Him your heart and life today.
