Heart Trouble

We all know there is no such thing as absolute freedom. We cannot drive down the street at 100 miles an hour. You can’t swing your fist at me, because your freedom stops at the end of my nose. We can say that we want freedom to publish pornography, to push harmful drugs, to have unrestricted sex, to lie, to cheat; but if we continue with that kind of permissive freedom, we shall destroy ourselves.

Man can remain free only so long as he has the moral power to restrain his appetites. Basically, our problem is heart trouble. Our hearts need to be changed . . . peace will never come until we have changed human nature, until people begin loving each other instead of hating each other.

Prayer for the day

I need Your guidelines in my life, Lord. Loving You frees me from the bondage of my carnal appetite.

    Amen. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” “May God bless us everyone.” Thankyou.

    We cannot change ourselves, because we have a bad nature. Only Jesus can change our nature to make us free from the evil, but it is necessary we want to be free.

    We must stay focused on the things of God because temptation and evil surround us. We need God’s full armor to combat sin.

    Everyday it dawns on me that what our world needs is Jesus. Yes, he is my only change and the change my world needs.

    We can not do anything good on our own. We only can love because Christ loved us first. As the Holy Spirit comes into our heart, then we can love in a way we never could before. Love will lead us home!!!
