Soften Your Heart

Soften your heart.

In your stubbornness you refuse the Lord, but in your submissiveness you trust in him who is merciful and just. Do not love the world and its distractions and make your guilt and condemnation greater, but turn away from sin and come to Christ with a broken and remorseful spirit, and you will be healed. Soften your heart.

For the minds of these people have become stubborn. They do not hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might really understand what they see with their eyes and hear with their ears. They might really understand in their minds and come back to me and be healed. Matthew 13:15

I pray also that you will have greater understanding in your heart so you will know the hope to which he has called us and that you will know how rich and glorious are the blessings God has promised his holy people. Ephesians 1:18

So brothers and sisters, be careful that none of you has an evil, unbelieving heart that will turn you away from the living God. Hebrews 3:12

Make a commitment today to pray for a soft heart, a heart of flesh, a heart that bleeds, weeps and mourns, a heart that cries out over injustice and suffering, a heart filled with mercy. When you have such a heart, then you will truly be able to love thy neighbor as thyself. And then, dear brother, your blessings will be sure!

About admin

I am a depraved, morally bankrupt wretched sinner through and through. I’ve attended church sporadically most of my life, haven’t spent a minute in seminary and only recently gave the Bible more than a cursory review. I’ve attended exactly one theology class and I dropped out of that. However, in spite of my moral infidelity, I’ve come to be filled with the Holy Spirit. I’ve learned my salvation isn’t the result of what I do, but rather what Jesus has done on my behalf. I didn’t find the Holy Spirit, He found me. And in our relationship I have invited Him to change me, to use me for His purpose, to conquer my will with His own. Praise the Lord, for even an unworthy, chronic sinner like me can experience and give testimony to His glory!
