“Son of man, these men have set up idols in their hearts!” Ezekiel 14:3

“Their heart went after their idols!” Ezekiel 20:16

We need to watch our heart-life, for it is in our thoughts, feelings, moods, tempers and affections–that departure from Christ begins.

We need to watch our inner spiritual state. The world may see no limit to our external zeal, our religious activity, our earnest promoting of the truth–and yet there may be not enough inner prayerfulness, love for Christ, tenderness of conscience, hunger for righteousness, or desire for holiness in our heart.

Is Christ more to you now, than He ever was before? Does His love draw you with an overwhelming sway? Can you say, with Zinzendorf, “I have only one passion, and that is Jesus!

Is your heart right?

“You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind!” Luke 10:27

“My son, give me your heart!” Proverbs 23:26

“Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life!” Proverbs 4:23
