I just heard this awesome song by Sean Feucht called Heart and Hands. The message in this song is awesome in that it emphasizes how God will seek after all of us until every Heart is found. People may give up on God for many reasons, but God will never give up on us. The scripture that comes to mind when I think of this unrelenting love that God has for ALL people is this:
The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
In knowing this, never look at people that appear to be too far gone by our standards. If God hasn’t given up on a person, then neither should we. It isn’t easy to “love” people, especially those that are disagreeable to us, however; when we pray to have a heart like Jesus, it means that in order to have a heart like His, we must renew the spirit of our minds so that our hearts can be molded to become more Christ-like in our actions.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
I remember in a previous post some time back that I wrote that many people think that we think with our “minds” and our “brains”, but for the most part… I do believe that we think often with our “hearts” if you just take a look at this scripture:
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
How else can we worship God purely, if we do not strive to purify our hearts? So, my message today is as Christians, let us focus on purifying our hearts so that we can cultivate having The Mind of Christ in all that we do, Amen! I pray that as you listen to this song, may it minister to your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
