SUCH AN HEART

“O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!” (Deuteronomy 5:29 KJV)

  1. Doves know what to do with their lives — because God installs preprogrammed instinct into them, to do what is right for doves. But the tricky part about being a human is this thing called “choice” — we have a will that can do right or do wrong (see Romans chapter 7). Deuteronomy 5:29 (quoted above) reminds us that it’s for our own benefit that we devote our hearts and lives to honoring and serving our Creator-God, the Lord Jesus Christ. He not only created us who we are, He graciously provides redemption (to those who want it) by His atoning death and His resurrection, both of which are finished deeds of history. Doing what is right (i.e., believing in Christ for salvation, then living a life of grateful reverence that honors Him, is what we are designed for anyway (see Ephesians 2:8-10). Just as a dishwasher is a machine designed for washing dishes (and not for removing tar, wet mortar, and/or oil-based paints from a construction worker’s clothing!), the dishwasher operates so much better when it is being used to do what it was originally intended and designed for. Likewise, our lives operate much more smoothly when we properly relate them to our beneficent Maker and His intentions for our lives (both here and hereafter). Of course, the “Manufacturer’s Manual for Proper Operation of Human Lives” (better know as the HOLY BIBLE) should be regularly consulted and implemented, to make sure that the human life is being operated according to the Manufacturer’s design and intentions.

    • Yes, The Operator’s Manual for us humans is being neglected more and more. Praise the Lord that many of us are still consulting It. Doing what is written is where faith cones in.
