He’s After Our Heart

I remember a time before I was saved when I thought, “why would I want to give my life to Jesus and have to follow all His rules?

It’s a thinking most people (especially the younger generation) probably contemplate.

But following Jesus is not viewed as following rules as an undertaking.

First, Christ is after our heart. Since He knows all things, He not only knows your hearts, but your desires and fears.

When we come to Christ with everything we have and surrender it to Him, something happens. We start desiring different things. We want to serve Him and others. We want to give our time and resources.

It’s a dangerous move to tell someone you’ve given your life to Christ, when your heart is not in it.

Life as a Christian is not easy sometimes, but it is so worth it.

The joy of answered prayers of life long dreams is unimaginable.

Are you ready to surrender your heart to Jesus today? As Christians, we can say that we believe in Jesus and His Word, but if our actions don’t demonstrate obedience, then others are going to question us.

Live out God’s word in your daily life. He wants your heart, along with your obedience to Him.

Psalm 37:4 – “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
