Alright, you are officially welcome to this blog. This is the second part of matters of the heart.
CASE STUDY: JESUS AT SIMON’S HOUSE
Jesus once had an invitation to eat in one Simon’s house. As they sat down and were eating, one woman( a harlot and a sinner) came in. She wept at Jesus’ feet, used her tears to wash His feet and her hair to clean it. Ah well, this action by the woman could mean a lot of things. Any bigot has the right to beget the woman.
HOW CAN YOU TOUCH A HOLY RABBI?
Many Pharisees, then, always had their way out through the law. They always knew when and how to make the law work for them. In this story, while she was doing this, Jesus and the owner were busy talking. The man was saying something to Jesus, BUT IN HIS HEART.
He did not know that Jesus had the ability to know what he was saying in his heart. Jesus who wanted to ‘puncture’ his heart suddenly stood abruptly and said ‘Simon’ He said “Yes sir”. Jesus asked, ” when I came to your house, did you give me water to wash my feet? Did you give me towel to clean my feet?
SEE THIS WOMAN, SINCE I CAME, SHE HAS NOT STOPPED WASHING MY FEET WITH HER TEARS AND USING HER HAIR( the glory of a woman) TO CLEAN MY FEET.
The Natural heart of a human, never thinks something good for a neighbor…the story ended when Jesus said He who is forgiven much, loves much…
IF YOUR HEART IS GOOD, GOD WILL ALWAYS CHOOSE YOU FOR HIS SERVICE…FORGET ABOUT THOSE WITH THE PHYSIQUE AND QUALIFICATIONS
What is the condition of your heart?
What goes on in your heart?
Is your heart right with God?
Have your affections been nailed to the cross?
Are you internally converted?
You may appear zealous and people are praising God for you, but does God say that about you?
God knows your quiet predisposition towards money that makes you press on saying, “Yes it will soon be all right, it will soon be all right.”
he knows your zeal is because you are looking for money. God knows many that look gentle because power has not come into their hands yet. He knows how your heart will hold tenaciously to power if He should just show you a little power. He knows what you will do…
You remember God regretted over Saul. I keep praying for myself. “God, don’t ever have a reason to regret that you expose me to the work of the ministry and identified my name with your work“.
When God desires to use us, the first thing He checks and checks again is the HEART. SO, if you want to commit yourself to God, you must check the HEART first.
Do you see a seed of pride and arrogance in you which might spring up if He should fertilise you with anointing?
If God gets a correct man in you to lavish His power on, the church will change overnight.
You can become great in the hands of God…Issues concerning the heart cannot be changed by one party alone, whether God alone( that will be abuse of Will) and man alone(too frail and powerless)
TEAM UP WITH GOD TO CONTINUALLY WORK ON YOUR HEART, TO BECOME A TRUE MAN OF GOD IN THESE ENDTIMES….
May God Almighty, the Good and true, bless you, as you undertake this spiritual exercise
