HEART #1

*** GOD VALUES MY HEART ABOVE ALL ELSE! ***

Time & again, Scripture emphasizes how God looks at the heart, desires rightness of heart over sacrifices, rules, etc.

Rewards are based on the heart—consider the widow’s two mites on the “low” end & the alabaster box (broken and poured on Jesus’ feet) on the “high” end.

And it only makes sense, since His “heart” was poured out for us: medically, the water & blood from His pierced side were in sacs around His heart!

Bruce Wilkinson explains this well in a book titled The Life God Rewards. We get rewards in heaven based on our heart attitudes, not on appearances. (Rick Joyner also does a good job of illustrating this with the wino who got saved at the end of the book The Final Quest.)

I AM GOD’S “HEART”!

GOD’S HEART IS “FOR” ME!

(Romans 8:28 ff.)

“ONE THING” MY HEART DESIRES…

(Psalm 27:4; Luke 10:42; etc.)
