It's all about the Heart

Scriptures say... It's the Heart man, the heart... that is the subject we discussed last night in our men's group... When most guys want to operate strictly out of their mind... we must go for the heart first. Proverbs 4:20 tells us to Guard our heart, because that's where the issues of life flow from... If we don't guard what we let in, we can be taken down the wrong road in life... Doing what WE DO FROM THE HEART... is the matter we all need to deal with. Isaiah 29:13 goes like this,"These people draw near with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, BUT their heart is far from Me." the Bible also tells us that..."God looks at the heart"... Men miss so much in life because we are trying to listen TOO much with our mind, and miss what our heart is telling us... Jesus tells us in Matthew 12:35, "Good and evil come forth from the heart". That's why God gives us a new heart when we make Jesus Lord through the "Born Again" experience, a heart that receives and contains the Spirit of God...This heart that has become new in Christ is submitted to God's Word, and is empowered to obey that Word... so when we follow the New Heart we win over temptation, over tension, and over wrong thinking... Yeah... it's all about the Heart... Have you received yours yet? Peace, Karl
