"Examination of the Heart and Mind"

 

“Examination of the Heart and Mind”

 

“I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.”       Jeremiah 17:10

 

In verse nine, Jeremiah tells us that the HEART of mankind is, above ALL things, DECEITFUL and beyond cure, except NOW, the cure is the SHED BLOOD of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, which not only CLEANSES mankind but it CHANGES the HEART of mankind.   In Psalm 26:2-3, King David gives us a GREAT EXAMPLE of what should be our plea to God,  He says:  “Test me, LORD, try me, EXAMINE my HEART and MIND; for I have always been MINDFUL of your UNFAILING love and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness. 

 

When we live in ACCORDANCE to God’s WILL, we are prone to do GOOD WORKS, and we are PLEASING to Him.  Our verse in Jeremiah, tells us that we are REWARDED ACCORDING to our CONDUCT.  Romans 8:4-7 says:  “In order that the RIGHTEOUS requirement of the law might be FULLY met in us, who do NOT live ACCORDING to the FLESH, but ACCORDING to the SPIRIT.”  Verse five states:  “Those who live ACCORDING to the FLESH have their minds set on what the FLESH desires; but those who live in ACCORDANCE with the Spirit (Holy Spirit), have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.  The MIND governed by the FLESH is DEATH (spiritual), but the MIND governed by the Spirit is LIFE and PEACE.  The LIFE governed by the FLESH is HOSTILE to God; it does NOT SUBMIT to God’s Law, nor can it do so.” 

 

So, that is why an EXAMINATION of the HEART and MIND of ALL TRUE BELIEVERS are ESSENTIAL to the LIVING BODY of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, the CHURCH.  It would be HARMFUL to the HEALTH of the Church, if there were some LIVING by the FLESH or to COMPROMISE, by trying to LIVE both by the FLESH and the SPIRIT.  You cannot LIVE this way.  You must CHOOSE which way you will LIVE, by the FLESH, which is NOT PLEASING to God, or by the SPIRIT which is VERY PLEASING to God, and your CHOICE will determine what your DEEDS are, and what REWARD, if any, you will receive.   What will your EXAMINATION reveal about your HEART and MIND? 

 

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you have FAILED your EXAMINATION.  And you are SPIRITUALLY DEAD and your ETERNAL DESTINY is HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after your there.  However, God has a CURE for your SIN-SICK HEART and MIND. It is the SHED BLOOD of the LORD JESUS CHRIST.   In order to PASS the EXAMINATION, you MUST be WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENANT HEART.  CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART and MIND, that JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and let Him EXAMINE your HEART and MIND, and receive your REWARD of an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
