"Did you take God into your mind only, or did you also embrace him with your heart? Did he get inside you?" Acts 19:2 (TM)
I was raised in church. I went to Sunday School. I sang in the children’s choir. I attended Vacation Bible School. I was in church most Sundays with my family. I went to confirmation classes. But, I still didn’t have a relationship with Jesus. God was in my head. I read about him. I pondered him. I hung around him. But, I didn’t know him. There was still and emptiness in my heart and in my life that begged to be filled.
Then, it happened on a cold February night when I was a Freshman in high school. God got inside me. He transcended my head and entered into my heart. My life was different. Like the Ephesians, I experienced a moment in time when I entered into a personal relationship with Jesus. I know others who can’t point to an exact timeline, but who have experienced the same transformation over time. It’s the transformation from head knowledge about God into a heart to heart relationship with Jesus.
Is God in your head or in your heart?
