Heart Check-up

Then Jesus said: What comes from your heart is what makes you unclean. Out of your heart come evil thoughts, vulgar deeds, stealing, murder, unfaithfulness in marriage, greed, meanness, deceit, indecency, envy, insults, pride, and foolishness. All of these come from your heart, and they are what make you unfit to worship God.

(Mark 7:20-23 CEV)

I’ve made it a habit to go for a regular heart check-up. Mind you, it’s not to the doctor’s office, even though that’s important too, but to God in prayer. “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting,” prayed the psalmist (Psalm 139:23-24 NIV). Each visit to God’s throne of grace has been worthwhile because not only is He an expert at examining the condition of my heart, but mending it as well. Only He can create a pure heart in me, so that I can have a right relationship with Him. Therefore, going to God for a heart check-up is an appointment that I never miss.

Make sure to go to God for a regular heart check-up.
