As I continue to search my scriptures and connect with my spirit, my daily prayer always falls back on the condition of my heart. The heart is stunning—- physically, it is the systematic “hub” of the human body and controls the functioning of all organs. Without the heart we are lifeless and non-exsistent. It’s proper functioning is key to our survival.
Beyond the physical, but similar to, the spiritual heart works the same in it’s function. Most times if the physical heart has a murmur, tumor, or clogged artery—-it’s a refelction of something else that’s not functioning in the body.
As Christians, our spiritual heart represents who we are in Christ and is the true pinnacle of our maturity and strength as believers. If your heart is a heart of flesh (Ezekiel 36:26), new and governed by the love of Christ, your pattern of life is different and more concerete.
Like I’ve shared before, lately my devotions are leading me to a daily heart check. Asking myself questions such as: Who do I really love? Am I representing Christ in my actions and thoughts? Do I communicate with God based on relationship or treating him as a spiritual ATM?
These questions matter tremendously—-if we do not engage in a constant evaluation of our heart, we can easily become unhealthy and malnourished Christians.
A heart check is beyond a doctor’s visit—- but it’s enageing in a constant communication with God, studying to understand His word, challenging your faith, and learning to Love God and people unconditionally.
Right Now: Ease off your computer and ask yourself the questions I listed above. Write them down. Mediate on them. Then take your answers to God wether good or bad— perform a Heart check and experience Growth.
