“People are fond of saying God knows my heart. Especially the religious partially obedient half committed people. God does know our hearts, but He means something very different by it.
He means that our choosing to do or choosing not to do what He says reveals what’s IN our heart. Our hearts are revealed by the choices we make. If you find that your heart isn’t right you can ask Him, and He will give you a right one” (Brother Greg).
FYI, this is a different Greg, in case you were wondering. But he speaks truth.
Jesus said it a little differently. He said we show our love for God by how we obey what He says. Those actions don’t save us, but they are a demonstration of a saving faith at work.
May we all have a heart that yearns and delights to do the will of the Father.
