I’m a lover of books and Bible studies and commentaries and all things words. I’m type A all around. I like schedules and structures and rules. (In other words, I am boring!...wait, was that my kids and friends talking?).
The head part of Christianity is so much easier for me than the heart part.
But the heart part is what matters most.
Yes, we need to have solid theology, but it needs to go beyond our heads; it needs to penetrate our heart and soul.
When it stays in our head, surrender and obedience are simply additional checklists and rules...a burden.
But, when it spills into our heart, surrender and obedience are an overflow of deep, genuine love and gratitude...a natural response.
“You believe that God is one. Good for you! Even the demons believe that, and shudder.” James 2:19
Several years ago I started praying that God’s Word would be my greatest desire. Today I can say that I love God’s Word. My fervent prayer lately is to LOVE GOD.
