Service of the Heart
and human hands can’t serve his needs—for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need.
Acts 17:25 (NLT)
He requires the servitude of human hearts! True that the hands will follow in union with the heart but He wants us to lead with our heart first.
Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
Matthew 6:21 (NLT)
Jesus became our sacrifice on which the guilt of all our sin was laid. His Grace is given freely just as His life was and it abounds with overwhelming power to absolve our disgrace!
What he asks for in return is not what we can and will do for Him through His power but rather who we are! He wants us! He wants our hearts first! Then our obedience to His will, which will result in us yielding to His Spirit's direction in our lives.
God knows people’s hearts, and he confirmed that he accepts Gentiles by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as he did to us.
Acts 15:8 (NLT)
Serve our Lord and Savior; it begins with the heart!
