How big is your heart?
I have been told that a healthy human heart is about the size of a fist. Not all that big, considering the job it has to do and how hard it works!
But what about your other “heart,” your spiritual heart? How big is it? It all depends on the choices you’ve made in life.
Some folks have a puny, shriveled spiritual heart. They’ve never committed to growing, enlarging and expanding it. Because of this small-hearted condition, they are weak, easily discouraged, and significantly restricted in their usefulness to God and His Kingdom. Others have found the blessing of big-heartedness. They have grown bigger on the inside. They have discovered the thrill of of living with an enlarged heart.
God wants all of us to be big-hearted people. Growing a bigger heart is one of the greatest things you’ll ever do. Life gets a lot better for us when it happens! It’s required if we’re going to have a joyous, meaningful and spiritually productive life. It will change us, and all our relationships in amazing and wonderful ways.
So how do we grow bigger on the inside?
There are certain spiritual activities and attitudes that exercise, strengthen and enlarge our hearts. This weekend at Church of the Redeemer we’re going to discover what these are and how to practice them. Learning and living these truths will make a huge difference in your life. Make plans to join us this weekend for this important message. Bring a friend with you!
