Your Heart Matters - By Pastor Dave Weeks
Depending on which version of the Bible you use, the word “heart” is mentioned somewhere between 570 and 830 times. That’s a lot and shows us how important the heart is to the Lord.

When Jesus is forced to talked about being good or bad in reference to what people eat and touch (Matthew 15), he makes it very clear that what we eat, drink, wear or touch do not make a person good or bad. It is what comes out of the heart that makes the real difference. We can pretend all we want, put up defenses, do all the right things, and even claim what we’re doing is good, but in the end our hearts tell the truth. “A person may think their own ways are right, but the Lord weighs the heart.” (Proverbs 21:2) I am glad that we have God’s Word to keep this matter clear. It has the power to keep us honest. On the scales of righteousness, we are always found wanting. There is nothing good that lives in our hearts.

Thankfully, God loves us enough to provide spiritual surgery. “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12) Yes, the Lord cares for your heart and that IS a very good thing.

How do we take care of the heart? Physically, you exercise, eat right, and get regular check-ups. Ask anyone who has a heart issue and they will give you the details of the care that goes into a healthy heart. Spiritually, we go to Joel 2:13. “Rend your hearts and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and he relents over disaster.” We must break our sinful hearts in order to have room for healthy repentance and forgiveness from the Lord. How do we live with a renewed heart? The first part of the summary of the commandments helps us with that. “Love the Lord your God with all of your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”

God’s love for us all comes from His heart. He sends His one and only Son to show us His heart and the extent of His love. The very heart of the Lord matters to us as our hearts matter to Him.

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God!”

From the Heart –

Pastor Dave
