Heart Check

Heart Check

“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Jesus Christ)

Those are challenging words of Jesus. He’s calling us to do some soul searching to discover what it is that drives our lives. Doing a heart check isn’t something we tend to do. It’s much easier to dive into each day’s activities without thinking why we’re living life the way we are. To be honest, it’s too hard, too complicated to get serious about what matters most. Being busy is exhausting, but it’s easier than facing the truth.

We are constantly being warned about keeping our focus. Road signs tell us to put down our phones and keep our eyes on the road. Being distracted can have tragic consequences. Jesus’ call to re-evaluate what we are living for is no less serious. How disastrous it would be to find out one day that everything we worked so hard for in life wasn’t important at all – that we missed out on the real purpose for our lives.

When Jesus spoke with people, his primary goal was never to make them feel good. It was always to bring them to the understanding and desire to get to know him better, to benefit from who he is and what he does for us. It is no different today. Jesus’ call to re-examine the direction of our lives makes us uncomfortable, but that distasteful effort promises to produce benefits in our lives we have difficulty comprehending.

If you are ready to get off the relentless treadmill of distracted busyness and feel the need for a heart check, join us for our Sunday morning worship service. You probably already know – Jesus is in the business of heart transformations.
