A Heart of Belief

By   •   March 6

The heart is the blood-pump of the body. It is also used metaphorically when we speak of affections and feelings. Since it is the central organ of the body and one of the most vital, the Bible speaks of it as the wellspring of life. Hence, it is used synonymously with “life.” When the Bible says, “Son, give me thine heart,” it doesn’t mean that we are to cut out our actual hearts and give them to God. It means that we are to give Him our lives, our all. When we come to Christ, we are not only to give intellectual assent with our minds, we are to “believe in our hearts.” We can believe in the historic Jesus, but if we have “saving faith” our belief must involve our whole being. When we believe with all our hearts, the will, the emotions, and the intellect are surrendered to Christ.

Listen to Billy Graham’s message, “The World Has a Heart Problem,” from the 1957 New York City Crusade.

Prayer for the day

Lord, I believe and rejoice in the knowledge that You are alive and my Redeemer!

    The word “Surrender”, can have a negative connotation. As in, defeated. However when the word is used with regard to, surrendering to Christ. It is extremely positive and will mean, a new beginning.

    “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. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved.””May God bless us everyone. Amen” “The way of the Cross Leads Home. Amen”

  7. Sandy says:

    I thank my Lord Jesus Christ for dying for me that I might have forgiveness for my sins and for saving me. I also thank Him for revealing to me that He is the truth of all situations in my life and all I have to do is lift them up to Him and believe and wait on His answer. He is the answer to all things in my life. Just to realize that He is with me every where I go and there is nothing that is too big for Him for handle. His ways are so much higher than I can understand, but because He loves me, it also means that His answer to my life situations are so much greater than anything I can imagine. Thank You Lord Jesus for calling me and saving me when I turned to You. I am going to see Jesus someday, what more is there?
