CIRCUMCISED HEARTS

MUSING – April 22 2018

CIRCUMCISED HEARTS

Deuteronomy 10:16-18
     “So circumcise your uncircumcised hearts, and don’t be impossible to deal with any longer.  The LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, powerful, and awe-inspiring God. He never plays favorites and never takes a bribe.

 

    Circumcision is a sacrifice, a physical representation of abandoning self will and accepting God’s will.* It is also a type of death of life in the flesh. Life in the flesh leads to death while life in the Spirit leads to life and peace.**

    Belief in and obedience to God is the circumcision of the heart that God , through Moses, demands of God’s followers. Jesus, by being compliant to the will of God***, became the embodiment of the circumcised heart.****

    Choose obedience to God and life in the Spirit, change your heart.

    

*Genius 17:10

**Romans 8:16

***Luke 22:42

****Colossians 2:11
