How many rooms do you have in your heart?
Do you have a room full of hate? A room full of envy? Or a room full of love? The hear is the house of God, its where the Holy Spirit live. Now I am not talking about the heart that beets blood through you, but rather the heart that the bible speaks of.
The Jewish people considered the heart the essence of life, when they spoke about the heart, they where speaking about the whole being, body and soul.
So how many rooms does your heart have, and what have you filled them with?
Who we are is a very deep and personal thing, not many, if any, really know us truly, except God. So when God looks in to your heart, what does he see? Does he see rooms full of junk, junk like hate, envy, thoughts of lust, or does he see rooms full of compassion, trust, love and understanding?
People like Mother Theresa had heart full of rooms filled with love and compassion, Hitler had a heart full of rooms counting, hate, deceit and desire to kill.
The heart can not be divided, it must serve one master, the rooms we create and fill are ours. God did not build one room, nor did he fill it with hate, rather God created the heart to hold love. The walls in the heart where created by us, to keep in the hate and un-trust, the lust and lies. God did not create walls, we did.
Look deep within, and see the walls you have created, all built to hold in what does not belong. Much like adding a lining to hold water in a straw basket. The basket was not made to hold water, we added the lining to do this for us. The same is true of out heart, it was not created to hold anything, but rather to give freely of love. But we have built walls and room, to hold in hate and sin, and the love we give, is then tainted with hate.
Tear down the walls, open your heart, and let the love flow, and rush over us all. Jesus had a heart with no walls, no rooms, he had the heart that God intended all of us to have.
So how will you tear down your walls?
