Do we really stop to think about why ‘with all your heart’ is tucked into so many commanding Bible verses? It isn’t uncommon to read, “If you pray earnestly, cry out with all your heart, or seek me with your whole heart…”
I believe the answer to this question lies in the true description of the Bible itself… ‘The LIVING WORD.’
Think about our mortal lives… When the heart stops beating our life here on earth also stops. The heart is the muscle of our worldly existence. We get this. The key on this image seems so profound because it speaks of what is IN THE HEART. That is where true living is!
Anyone, with any disposition, can read the Bible. And, they most likely will get some bits and pieces of knowledge… but I want more for all of us. Let’s dig deeper into the HEART OF THE TEXT.
Let’s look at the Word with more than our eyes and listen with more than our ears… let’s pray before we read blogs, listen to podcasts, study the Bible, and go to our church services. Let’s cry out with everything we’ve got to SEE and HEAR the Word with our heart!
This is the key to the LIVING Word.
Faith Infused Living… Reaching Goals Higher!
