As we come to faith concerning our true identity in Jesus, we are awakened to discover that this new life comes with a new heart! This heart is the "spiritual organ" of true knowing and spiritual discernment. Through this new heart that Jesus gives us we can follow the still small voice-the heart promptings of his Holy Spirit. Therefore 'nurturing' our 'new' heart is critical to living authentically in him.
This is so important that Paul taught the church at Ephesus... "to pray that out of His glorious riches he may strengthen us with power through His Spirit in our inner being, so that Christ my dwell (be at home) in our hearts through faith... and pray that we; being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that we may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
You can answer this prayer as you become better acquainted with this new heart Jesus gave you! Living from the heart! Ron Ross
