Wising Up Lesson!!

I am learning a lot at the Bible study...Wising up!! This week the focus is on the heart. This is a huge part of a person as a Christian. A lot of Christians can say things and do things in the "right" way but not really mean it from their heart. What is in the heart will eventually come out. In the Proverbs it says that a person's heart is a "wellspring." Tara Dew gave us a great explanation of our hearts being a wellspring. In a well you draw out water. What is in your "well" or heart (them being the same thing) will eventually come out. With your heart not only being a well but it being a "spring" as well would mean that your heart overflows like a spring. What is in your heart will eventually come out wether like a well or a spring or both!! This was very convicting to me. It is ultimately my heart that shows who I truely am in Christ. It reminded me of the song "Change my heart, Oh God." A few of the lyrics go like this, " Change my heart, Oh God. Make it ever true. Change my heart of God, May I be like you." This is only a little bit of the song but this is the song that came to mind when I read these last few days of lessons. Make sure your heart is filled with the right things. Do not let it be filled with evil, and deceit but let it be filled with the Holy Spirit and the things of Christ. This is the way we are called to live, With clean hands and a pure heart. There are so many wonderful Scriptures and Biblical songs that refer to having a clean and pure heart. This is very important as a Christian, a follower of Christ.
