Good Morning Precious and Dearly Loved Child of God!
Do you see your heart as it is In Christ? Do you see your heart perfected, glorified, filled and overflowing with the Love, Power and Joy of Christ? If you do, you would be seeing Truth! When Jesus took out your old stony heart at the Cross, He gave you a new heart. This heart is not a used, beat up heart Jesus found at the junk yard, or the pick-a-part lot, this new heart is a gift from the Father! That makes this heart perfect and heavenly because anything from the Father is perfect and glorified!
“So we regard no one from a worldly point of view.” 2 Corinthians 5:16. How you view yourself comes out of the belief about yourself in your heart. “Keep your heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23. In you are still viewing yourself and others from your old attitudes of your fleshly heart, you will probably see a lot of condemnation, weakness, failure, sin, guilt….; some others see a lot of pride and arrogance. We are not to look at ourselves or others by the flesh.
This can be a challenge sometimes when yours or someone else’s flesh screams at you! When someone really offends you deeply, it can be a challenge. But we are to keep practicing in seeing all of life and all of its circumstances through this new perfect heart that we received at salvation. This new heart that is a gift from the Father, is full of His supernatural, Love, Power, Joy, Pleasures, Peace…. This heart is perfect in every way.
Your past is not recorded or remembered in your new heart. The Father doesn’t remember your sins and He doesn’t want you remembering them either! “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.” Hebrews 10:17. “That God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them.” 2 Corinthians 5:19. Your new heart is 100% free of a sin consciousness! Sin does not exist in heaven, and neither does it exist in your new heart or your new Spirit! “Christ in you, the hope of glory!” Colossians 1:27.
Your heart and Spirit are where Jesus dwells inside of you. Wherever Jesus dwells, there is perfection! Oh yes, we all sin, but the new heart and the Spirit of Christ cannot be tainted by sin! Not only is Christ in you, but the Bible refers to you being in Christ about 100 times. The Bible says you have been healed, 1 Peter 2:24; you have been glorified, Romans 8:30; You have been perfected, Hebrews 10:14; you have died with Christ, Colossians 3:3; you were raised with Christ, Colossians 3:1; and have been seated with Christ, Ephesians 2:6; in every one of these states or occurrences, you are perfected where you are one and connected or inside of Christ!
“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me.” John 17:22. So it honors what Jesus did on the Cross when you see yourself as you are in Christ, seated in the heavenly realms! He spilled His blood for you so you could be one with Him! To continue to see yourself and others by the flesh, dishonors Jesus’ spilled Blood! Your redemption was paid for in His Blood! “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.
So keep looking to your new heart that is full of Jesus and all of His issues of His Life! Your heart is full then of His Love, Joy, Peace, Power, Grace, Prosperity, Wealth, Pleasures…… Do not look at your heart through the veil of sin, the flesh, the past, even if you or someone close to you sins badly against you! “But we all, WITH UNVEILED FACE beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into His same image from glory to glory.” 2 Corinthians 3:18. See the huge heart of His Love and Glory inside of yourself without ANY veil of the flesh! KEEP LOOKING at the New Heart!!! No matter how many you or the people around fail, just keep looking to your New Heart! You will see Jesus, in all of His Glory there!
