the Heart

Posted on November 27, 2013 at 7:54 PM
11.27.13     The Heart



Isn't it amazing how much love a heart can hold? It stretches and stretches and stretches, to hold more - to hold more people in, regardless of pain and disappointment we hold these people in our hearts.   I reflect on all those that have come into my heart and that I have held there. There have been many over the years of my life, some held more securely than others. For such a small bodily organ it can hold a lot.
As I think on this, I marvel at the Heart of God. How big is His heart? It must be huge; it certainly has an unlimited capacity to welcome in multitudes and multitudes, and to love each one with an everlasting commitment.
What must one do to obtain entry into my heart? Prove faithful, goodness of character, kindness in thought and action, family. Does everyone behave appropriately all the time? No, sadly, none of us do really. And, yet, once one has come into my heart I will persevere to hold them there, forgiving and understanding, but still expecting an accountability. However, once a betrayal has taken place or an abuse, the level of containment in my heart dwindles, and some even leave my heart.
Have you ever thought of where you are in God's Heart? His heart is tender and forgiving, loving and kind. But also righteous and with accountability towards us and an expectation from us. No relationship will ever make it if it is always one-sided!  You must give to receive.  How does one come into the heart of God? What conditions or requirements are there? What must one do?  Recognize who He is. Ask. Come as you are right now. Today is the day of salvation.
No one comes to the Father but through His Son, Jesus Christ. Have you invited Jesus into your heart, your life? He won't come in without a personal invitation, whereas the devil will just barge in wherever he can. Once you have invited Jesus Christ into your heart - and truly mean it - you are securely anchored in the Father's Heart. Then your life with Him explodes and blessings will abound, your love relationship will grow and expand. You will want to know Him more and more. You will desire to read HIs love letters to you.
Why not open your heart once more to God the Father through Jesus the Son? Why not allow your heart to experience the most amazing love story ever? Step out and invite Him in.  It is more than worth it!!
- Pastor Sandi
 
John 14:6   "Jesus answered, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
Romans 10:9-10   "That if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is  with your mouth that you confess and are saved (from separation from God)."
Revelations 3:20   "Here I am! I stand at the door (of your heart) and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat (fellowship) with him and he with me."
