Lip Service Or Heart Surrender?

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Matthew 15:8

These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.


These words of Jesus were in response to the questioning of the Pharisees concerning what they perceived to be the breaking of the law by Jesus’ disciples. Jesus was upset and referenced the words of Isaiah and basically said, “You people say great words but your hearts are far from God.”


Have you ever met a salesman who could sell anything imaginable but you could tell they didn’t believe in the product? These Pharisees were called out by Jesus for the same thing. They talked about their devotion to God, but their hearts were in another County. The challenge for every “Follower Of Jesus” as time goes on is can you keep your heart in it? We know the TALK is there, but the heart is the first to go in a relationship that breaks up. It’s imperative that we stay devoted in our heart to Jesus. It’s up to you and me. Will it be “Lip Service Or Heart Surrender?”


Dear Jesus,

This AM I lay my heart on Your altar again. It will always be my heart first! Amen
