First John 3:17 “But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?”
WOUNDED HEARTS IN OUR MIDST
Our hearts are the part of our body that beats and brings oxygen and life to our body. It is a powerful muscle that never stops beating. If it does stop we die. Our emotional heart is what causes us to feel and respond to spiritual matters. Just like we should exercise to keep our heart strong, we should protect our heart from all sin. It should be kept open to holiness and filled with God’s love.
When hearts are wounded spiritually they become cold and distant from God. This is why so many cannot see the harm in abortion, fornication, pornography, adultery, pedophilia, drug addiction, alcoholism and all other sin.
Many of our religious leaders have become disillusioned and lost hope. When God called them, their hearts were pure and as time went by they became bitter and cold. So many have broken hearts for lack of support. They began to put their faith in intellectual ideas, which made them feel safe. This caused them to ignore the Holy Spirits promptings and fear letting go.
The fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit changes hearts, those who have experienced this change need to find religious leaders who allow the Holy Spirit to manifest without fear. These Spirit filled churches grow rapidly. Those churches run by fear dwindle rapidly.
Those who have not surrendered to Jesus need a change of heart. Their stony hearts keep them far from the love of Jesus. The farther away they stay the farther away their hearts are from God’s love. All their decisions are made with a stony heart. Their family prays for them to have a change of heart so they will be open to the truth and change their minds. Their mother’s hearts are broken because they will not be with them in heaven. She prays for their heart to be open to the love of Jesus. Then their unforgiving hearts will be healed of all bitterness. They will confess their sins and finally have a clean heart. Then their Fear leaves and they are left with a humbled heart. Their heart will be filled with goodness, and with the enlightened heart they are eager to pursue God’s will in their lives. Which brings them much Joy and Peace. The family has joyful hearts because of answered prayer.
