Proverbs 27:19, Your Heart Exposes You

1ABA7A1E-CEAB-442B-AD4C-497AD39810AB

The heart holds your feelings for others and self. A cold heart is removed from relationships with others. Your intentions are exposed through a callous heart. Similarly, if you are living according to the characteristics of Christ, your heart will illuminate its glow.

There is more to this Scripture, while we can glean our own intents, this verse speaks to our ability to discern another’s countenance, the hearts of those similar to our own.

“Who we are will eventually be evident to others as our words and actions reveal our heart.”

Disrupt Your Nature

IMG_6670
Disruption can be a political term, as in the case of many governments today, but this term can apply to our conversion of thought as well. Prior to accepting Christ as our Lord and Savior, we were lost. Our sin nature was its strongest, however, when we accepted Christ, we were saved and in essence born again. Our past was disrupted by our conversion.
Praise God that we have been freed from the shackles of sin. We will live in sin as long as we are on this earth, it’s our sin nature, but as Christians, we can be redeemed if we repent, ask for forgiveness, and continue to grow in the Word. Our God is a God of many chances, in fact, Christ said we should forgive as many as seventy times seven times.  This means we are to forgive as often as is necessary. We must forgive as God forgave us, wiping the slate clean.
Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Matthew 18:21-22, ESV
As we grow as Christians applying the Word to our daily lives, we will feel the shackles loosen and then fall away. The process of disruption, in this case, is freeing.
It is time that we disrupt and shed our practices, habits, and secular lifestyles to become more like Christ. When we do, we will be moved to protect our neighbors, love all people friend, and foe, and create a universal environment of love, tolerance, and acceptance.
This is a new day and a new beginning. Carpe Diem, seize the day.
