S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
2 Timothy 2:22
Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
These are the instructions of St. Paul to his understudy Timothy. He said to him that his actions should be of one who runs away from evil and instead races towards righteousness and faith and love and peace, along with everyone else who is wanting to “Do Everything Out Of A Pure Heart.”
You probably already know that when the Bible speaks of the heart, it’s talking about the place in your life where your decisions are made. That leads me to the question, “What’s in my heart?” Well, if evil lust is there, or impure motives are there, my heart will not be inclined toward the Lord. My only hope is that I have done my best to keep my heart pure through the study of God’s Word and my desire to serve the Lord. If that’s the case, there’s every reason to believe that my desires will be pure because my heart is pure. Don’t get me wrong, I’m just as susceptible to sin and wrongdoing as anyone else is, but it’s in my heart to do right. That’s the reason I encourage you this AM to “Do Everything Out Of A Pure Heart.”
I don’t just ask this AM for You to help me keep my heart swept clean, but I also want You to help me fill it up with righteousness, faith, love, and peace. Amen
