Don’t follow your heart and emotions.

Verse of the day: Hebrews 12:14: Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

Hello, how is everyone doing, hopefully, you are doing good in Christ, I know life can seem a bit lonely, coming from someone who experienced that himself but continue to remind yourself that everything will be alright in Christ, as long as you keep believing in him as your Lord and Saviour, and as long as you keep doing his will, (John 14:15 If ye love me, Keep my commandments). I remind myself of this every day too because I am not the perfect human being, I do fall into temptations too, but the difference between them and me is that I realise my sins and continue to repent in Christ, but they don’t, they commit sins and they continue to live life like nothing had taken place. That is probably what I am about to talk about in this blog, Funny enough, I did not know that it was going to link to the main subject of the blog. God works in mysterious ways, they say. Ok, you see these people that believe they are saved and continue to live in sin always say things like “Jesus has made me free”, “I know what my heart is telling me” I just feel that I am doing the right thing”, “you didn’t experience what I experienced”. Weird enough, their conversion from sinners to born-again Christians fruit is nowhere to be found. That’s a blog for another day (what are your conversion fruits as Christians). My point is that we can’t rely on these things, relying on our hearts, experience, and emotions.

How can we rely on things that fail us most time? your heart tells you to do something, guess what? that’s probably the worst thing or decision you have made in your life.

And about our experience of salvation, for we Christians, we only have one experience, “an experience that should only be found in Christ Jesus”. Notice that when people get saved, they mainly indicate one thing, that they are born-again in Christ, not you saying that you slept as a bad person one day, and all of a sudden you woke up to realise that you are a good person, so that’s your experience and that means you are saved. As weird as it can be, I know some individuals believe things like this, for real no joke. Even the Bible let us know about these things (not trusting them).

Here are some Bible Verses that give some insight into our hearts as human beings.

Genesis 8:21

21And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

Ecclesiastes 8:11

11Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

Jeremiah 17:9

9The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Matthew 15:19

 19For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

Only if we can realise that we can’t trust all these things that we have fully put our trust in, and that the only trust that can be trusted (if that is an English), is the trust that is found in the Grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Thanks a lot of reading.

KEEP THE FAITH STRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
