The Delivering Heart

- June 28, 2005

"But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." Hebrews 11:6

It's the time of the year for gardening. How beautiful to see all the wonderful roses and flowers created by God, shining with their unique colors and adding new smile to a new season.

We went to look for some colorful plants and found a plant called the "bleeding heart". The flower of this plant has the shape of a light pink heart with white string dwindling from it. It looked too beautiful to be labeled "bleeding heart". I saw the flower as a heart spawning another heart; it's the "delivering heart".

The Holy Spirit led me to meditate on the Jesus' Cross. On the cross, every part of Jesus body was aching with pain. Our sins and transgressions caused His back to be stripped, His Head to be pinched with thorns, His right side to be hurt, His Hands and Legs to be cruelly nailed to the cross. Every part in Him was bleeding except His Heart. His Heart held God's power to destroy the power of darkness on the cross; the power of love.

Friend, you know what pleases this Mighty Heart? Our faith. You know what hurts this Mighty Heart and causes it to bleed? Our lack of faith.

If you know of someone who labels himself/herself "skeptic", please share with him/her God's truth that without faith we do not please God; without faith we hurt His Heart.
