Handle Well Your Heart!!!!
"The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and contrite heart, O God you will not despise" (psalm 51:17)
This is the cry of King David, after he had broken the commandments and destroyed a precious couples marriage. (2 Samuel 11)
The message of God throughout the bible is one of a heart such as King David's, one where can God can forgive you, restore you and give you a new heart for Him!
It is from this place of complete brokenness true worship is borne! Worship from a place of the depths of despair to a gratitude to an awesome and wonderful saviour.
True worship and gratitude comes from seeing through the eyes of God your sin and the grief it caused to His heart!
The woman in Luke 7, whom brought perfume in an alabaster jar to anoint Jesus and dried her tears on His feet with her hair - she understood what it meant!
Jesus response to the Pharisee who looked onto this was, "therefore i tell you, her many sins have been forgiven - for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little".
How much do you love Jesus today?
