Remember what it says: “Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts….” Hebrews 3:15 (NLT)

We all know about heart disease. Exercise and healthy eating is what keeps our heart and arteries from getting hard and crusted over until the blood can’t flow freely through our bodies. When we are motionless and continually take in unhealthy things, the opposite occurs occurs. Our arteries harden, blood can’t flow properly, and we eventually die when the heart can’t operate.

So it is with our spiritual hearts. When we remain spiritually sedate and feed our souls on selfishness, greed, anger, hatred, gluttony, gossip, and the like, then God’s life giving Spirit gets choked out and can’t flow. There is a build up of muck in our soul and our heart eventually becomes spiritually hard, constricting the ability to feel and hear God’s Spirit within us. When God tries to call to us, we are deaf to His still, small voice.

Today, I’m not only thinking about my physical health, but my spiritual health as well. I want my heart, both physically and spiritually, to be healthy. I want to feel Life flowing strong and free within my veins and my spirit.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Hebrews 3”

  1. 13 You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God.
    Christian accountability has played and continues to play an important role in my life. I have been held accountable and have needed to hold others accountable. Sin indeed deceives and convinces us that what feels good must be best for us. Not true. Sometimes that is hard to hear, but ultimately I am thankful for brothers and sisters in Christ who look out for my best interests.
