God cleans dirty hearts

2015-07-22 06:00

“NOT that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.” (Matt. 15:11).

Holiness is not what we are thinking, because everything comes from the heart.

When we pray for the sick and say “be healed,” for example, God cannot answer when the heart is not pure.

Every evil thing comes from the heart. Matt. 15:19 says: “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.”

Despite all David did wrong, Acts 13:22 says: “And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.”

Psalm. 51:10 says: “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”

A clean heart is mentioned because there are dirty ones. Once the heart is clean, it is a good place for God to live; because God is Holy.

When God comes into the heart of a person, He has cleansed it. He can never live in an unclean place. For a Holy God to live in a heart, He must first cleanse it.

If we want to pour a drink into our cup, where do we look, inside or outside?

We look at the inside first, before we even look at the outside. That is how God looks to the heart first.

Prayer Point: Call the name of Jesus once and pray: Lord, in the name of the risen Christ, set me free from the spirit that hates Your Word.
