Make Room in Your Heart

By   •   August 30   •   Topics:

When H. G. Wells summed up the influence of Jesus in history, he said, “Is it any wonder that this Galilean is too much for our small hearts?” And yet the heart of man, though small, is big enough for Christ to live in, if man will only make room for Him. Christ instilled the spirit of Christian love in His followers, so that they lived without malice and died without rancor. The love that Christ talked about can only be given to us by God. It is one of the fruits of the Spirit. When you come to Jesus Christ, He transforms you. Your past is forgiven. You receive a power to love men, beyond your natural ability to love.

Take today’s devotion one step further. Study God’s love with Anne Graham Lotz.

Prayer for the day

Instill in me, dear Father, Your same Spirit of love which enabled the disciples to live with true charity.

    I have learned to love my enemy. When I see them at the church, I smile at them. Not one of them has smiled back and it hurts me inside. I was thinking on that day, Sunday, in front of the altar, asking myself, why did they behave like they didn’t know me? I asked God to keep blessing them while I keep praying. I didn’t realize I had tears rolling down my face while I was saying my prayers.

    How difficult it is to take up my cross and walk daily ! First of all, I should learn by sitting at the foot of the cross of the dying thief who repented from his heart. How complacent have I become in my Christian life ! Lord I believe, help Thou mine unbelief and increase my faith. Amen. I claim the promise in Zechariah 8:13 that, I, once accursed, shall be saved and become a blessing. What the intellectual Jew could not see, the babe that the centurion was, could see ! Forgive me, Lord, for having offended You on many an occasion. You died for my sins and not my weaknesses.

    Jesus give me the strength and perseverance of mind to follow your command in today’s Daily Devotion. My first instinct is to be angry or upset at an adverse comment or action.
