(LINK) The Matter Of The Heart

ashley has a great post calling for thoughts about the heart:

Hey, Think about this: what kind of difference would it make if you knew and believed that who you are (your heart essentially) is good and not evil?

it’s a great question and i’m really excited to see what people think. i encourage you to check out her blog and throw in your thoughts about it. you can also read mine. here is a summary:

i believe that (what i call) “the redemption of the heart” (the heart becoming naturally good instead naturally evil) CAN happen…but it doesn’t happen automatically. (like steph says) there IS a hole in our heart that only God can fill…but that is not our WHOLE heart. just like Jesus is invited in our whole life…that doesn’t mean He is ruling and has control over our whole life.

it’s a journey and progression, learning how to let Jesus take FULL control of our WHOLE heart. when He does, He fills us with “all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (eph 4:2…the next verse after the eph 3 prayer).

when we get to THAT point…i think then we can start trusting our hearts…cause the WHOLE of our hearts are filled with God…not just a part.

what do you think about this answer? what are your thoughts about “the redemption of the heart”?
