“Loving a holy God is beyond our moral power. The only kind of God we can love by our sinful nature is an unholy god, an idol made by our own hands. Unless we are born of the Spirit of God, unless God sheds His holy love in our hearts, unless He stoops in His grace to change our hearts, we will not love Him. To love a holy God requires grace, grace strong enough to pierce our hardened hearts and awaken our moribund souls” - R.C. Sproul
Soulfari has been quiet for a few days, mostly because I have so much on my plate right now. Regular work, freelance work, board meetings, family meetings…the list goes on and on. What I’m trying to finish up is my sermon for this coming Sunday called “A Crazy Little Thing Called Love”…catchy isn’t it?…sounds like a song…hmmmm. Some of the thoughts I had here are part of what I intend to share.
So this small post is simply to remind you all that I’m still here…just hunkered down preparing my heart to talk about our love for God…by talking about my level of love for Him. I sense that this could be a huge moment as I express where I am in this leg of my journey with the Lord. I pulled this from the post I mentioned above.
“This is where I find myself tonight…how much do I REALLY love my God, my Messiah? The past few months I thought my struggles, my challenges were about questions of faith. No, they were questions about love.”
I am humbled by this thought and it has changed (is changing) my heart. I’m excited to find out that my heart is not as dead as I feared…
“And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.” Ezekiel 36:26 NLT
I will blog more about this subject but God is doing a work in me that requires time and stillness…both which are at a premium lately.
Still, I wonder…who has your heart?
Can I pray for you?
There is always time for that!
Bless you all,
