JESUS LOOKS AT THE HEART
Acts 15:8 “God who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us. He made no distinction between us and them, for he purified their hearts by faith.” (No difference between Jew and Gentile with our Lord Jesus Christ)
The Scene: Symbolism–the window of the heart. Jesus desires all people to open their hearts to the light of His truth.
2 Corinthians 4:6 “For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. ”
- For many people, Jesus finds the windows to their hearts closed and the shade drawn.
- For some the window may be partly open with the shade pulled half-way down.
- For a few, Jesus finds the window to their hearts open and the shade all the way up, ready to receive from the Holy Spirit the light of the Truth of the Word of God.
John 16:13-15 “But when he, the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.” (Jesus speaking to the disciples)
Therefore, it behooves every Christian to keep an open window in our hearts, ready to receive every Word out of the mouth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus, the creator of the Word. ( See John 1:1)
