CLOSING THE DISTANCE BETWEEN OUR HEAD AND OUR HEART
This ministry is called Headz2Heartz because we are starting this journey by learning about God. As our knowledge of God grows we must move it to the very core of our being so we come to know God, intimately, as a child knows a parent. There is a difference between brain and heart knowledge and this short 18 inches can look like one end of our galaxy to the other for so many of us today. John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. It is the truth that will close the distance no matter what it looks like.
We are meant to be in this world, not of this world.
Romans 14:7-9 None of us lives for oneself, and no one dies for oneself. For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord; so then, whether we live or die, we are the Lord's. For this is why Christ died and came to life, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living.
We pack lite so we are not weighed down. We maintain a pace that minimizes the potential for us being distracted and lured into traps from which many have not recovered.
BUILDING OUR FOUNDATION ON SOLID ROCK
Matthew 27:24-25 Jesus tells us, “Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock.
We take baby steps. This is a lifetime venture. We start with prayer - talking with God. Yes, He already knows, but He wants to hear us We read scripture (Bible) and listen to God's words He has for us. Yes, the words were written thousands of years ago, but they are applicable just as much today. We go to church and join God's family (our brothers and sisters.) We were created out of love and to love. As a family we give Him praise and He feeds us. We allow God in our lives and to do those things only He can do for us. There will be obvious changes in our lives.
BE A DOER
James 1: 22-25
Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves. For if anyone is like a man who looks at his own face in a mirror. He sees himself, then goes off and promptly forgets what he looked like. But the one who peers into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres, and is not a hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, such a one shall be blessed in what he does.
We are not spectators. We are participants. God has a plan for us. We have a choice. We can cooperate, or not.
