7495 - Heart at Rest

Listen, read, and comment

Have you ever been troubled by guilt feelings or even a sense of uneasiness about your Christian life? Today we want to talk about setting our hearts at rest.

Our passage for consideration today comes from 1 John 3, verses 19 and 20:
This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence (20) whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.

Notice these considerations about a restful heart follows thoughts about how Christians should be helpful to our brothers and sisters in Christ. The principle which precedes this passage states that our actions of help and support for those in need should go beyond words of encouragement or even prayer. We should enter into helpful support, even sharing what we have with those less fortunate.
