As I read a book by a Christian missionary, I kept realizing that my previous actions are lacking. For example we could seemingly be doing God's work but not with a right heart. Our motives could be anything but the right one.As i understood from the book our motive should be out of love for the Lord, without this love we could just be following our own leading or desire.
How do we know we are loving the Lord ? i believe one way is to look at our prayers , is the focus on what we can get from the Lord ? or what the Lord wants us to do ? Is our focus is on self ? or in Jesus Himself ?
Anyway let us examine our hearts and if we found something , let us ask God to cleanse us. Better still to ask God to examine us and let Him remove what is not from Him and place His will upon our hearts.Let what is in God's heart be in our hearts.
