'A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.'
Good treasures. We long for goodies and treasures that will satisfy us forever. But do good movies satisfy us after they are over? Or a wonderfully written book? For a little time, perhaps, but soon those things will be forgotten by us. But what will not be forgotten to you, me, or God, is a young man or woman that devotes themselves to Jesus alone and not the tasty-looking things of this world. For but a moment they seem to fill us, and then they are gone, leaving us emptier than before.
What does your heart smell like? Does it stink like sewage because of selfishness inside, meaning you haven't repented?
Or does it overflow with praise to Jesus Christ for salvation? Its one or the other. God says that those that are Lukewarm He will 'spew them out of My mouth'!(Rev.3) He hates the undecided. 'Decide this day whom you will serve!' (Joshua 24:14-15)
If you've chosen that Jesus is enough for you for now and forever, then let me tell you somethin',
YOUR HEART NO LONGER STINKS! GOD THINKS YOUR HEART SMELLS LIKE LILACS!
Why? Because ITS NOT YOUR HEART anymore! Its JESUS' HEART IN YOU!!!!!
I don't know about you, but I want to be a young woman that devotes herself to the Lord and His Word only,
and if you will do that, then you will be a
that lives in LIFE FOREVER. If you follow Jesus and take up your cross for Him, then you will never spiritually die. Thank the Lord!
Just remember your High King and that He's the one that made you all that you are.
Inhale the goodness and majesty of the Lord! Amen now...and FOREVER!
