From The Heart


"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful" (Col.3:15).

Our Bibles talk about the heart all the time. Not in the generic sense, but the spiritual... Not about the organ that pumps blood to our bodies, but the one that has to do with thinking about what is right and wrong and hopefully guiding us to the right. It is certainly easy to be careless on our Christian walks from time to time. We know that we are not allowing the Spirit to guide us when we permit other things that would take us down the wrong path fill our hearts. We are not making the best use of our time when walk unwisely and live a compromised life. Paul Anka wrote a song that was popularized by Frank Sinatra in 1969 called "My Way." It is the story of a man who sees the end near and reflects upon his life. If you take a look at the lyrics, the man, in his reflection, attributes all of his experiences as a result of having done it "My Way." How sad it would be for a person to live a life without God in it... When we live as if there is no God, we make foolish mistakes. A life that is richly lived yearns for the precious presence of the Holy Spirit deep within the heart... We must make a conscious decision to be filled with the Spirit so that we will have love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, goodness and self-control... If things aren't quite as satisfying in our lives as they should be, maybe its because we're trying to go it alone. There is a power source available to enrich our lives if we allow it to fill our hearts... A bit more about the heart tomorrow...

Have a great day... Make your little part of the world better.... Love mark Phil.4:11
