True Repentance is a Heart Issue

Matthew 15:8 (NKJV) These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.

Trying desperately to serve ourselves, houses, cars, kids, online Images (the life we think everyone else wants, so we just have to post) we have been having ourselves a party!  We have been seeking to do whatever we wish to attain everything we desire and convincing each other that this is just the “American Dream.”  We often try so desperately to show everyone how much we matter while cutting ourselves a piece of the proverbial PIE. All we want is to be outwardly beautiful, rich beyond imagination, powerful, and in total control of every aspect of life.  This is called idolatry. Our churches are not immune from the pull of society and we must be diligent to pay attention to our own hearts. The things that matter most to us are our treasures and where our treasure is… there will our heart be also.  Read Matthew 6 - I pray today that your treasures are stored up in heaven.
