Rejoice-Tuesday Truth

"And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger." -Luke 2:12 ESV


Almighty God cam to this earth and chose to be born in a manger (an animal's feeding trough) probably in a cave or stable. What humility! Through this God shows that He came for all people regardless of social status. He is the Savior of the world!

When the water in a teapot is ready you hear the whistle. The steam has built up, shoots out of the spout and makes a noise. Our praise should be the same way. When we think about Jesus dying for our sins and all that God has done for us, something should be stirred up in us and cause praise to burst from our mouths!

Right now we live in a dangerous world. There is so much sinfulness and wickedness taking place. The world is getting worse and worse.

Mindset-Thursday Thought

The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
Like 6:45 ESV



Jesus makes an interesting statement here. "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks." The words that flow from our mouths are a reflection of what is in our hearts. The NLT translates the latter half of the verse "What you say flows from what is in your heart." Look back over the last week, month, and year. What have you been talking about, thinking about, and posting about on social media? What is in your heart?

The physical heart pumps oxygenated blood to the rest of our bodies. In a real sense the heart gives life to our bodies. Whatever is on our spiritual heart (who we are at our core, out true thoughts feelings, and motives) flows out to every other area of our lives. If you want to change your actions you need to change your heart. Only Jesus can do that!
