Yet, Not With Our Heart

December 7 & 8
December 7 – Hosea 5-9 / 3 John
December 8 – NO Daily Reading


Hosea 7:14 And they have not cried unto me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, and they rebel against me.


   It seems to me that there is a misconception among people today as to how and why people are saved. Some believe that if they just get them to say a prayer, they’ll have eternal life. Others seem to think that somehow they can scare them out of hell, and they will be saved. The problem I believe we have today as a result of some of these teachings are churches, full of misguided people. They have been converted from hell and not repentant for their sin. Possibly others are feeling safe with the prayer they said to be their salvation, and yet have not given their life over to God. Many people come to God looking for a stamp of approval on the life they live now, instead of salvation. Others are simply looking for safety from hell, but not the Saviour. We must love God for who He is, not just what He does.

   As we can see in the verse today, God has always wanted people to come to Him because they have given their heart to Him. Sadly, many loved the idea of what God can do for them, yet, not loved Him with their heart. God’s desire is that we would love him with our whole heart. Not that He might be their “good’s supplier,” truly loving Him for who He is. Then we realize that He’s not a “good’s supplier,” but He is the, “Good Supplier.” People need to humble their heart before a loving God and yield to Him in everything. Then, and only then the Bible says, He will direct our paths and supply all our needs.


   Oh God, forgive us if we’ve caused someone to believe that the words of a prayer alone will save them. Forgive us if we’ve tried to scare people out of hell alone. Help us Lord to live so people will Love you for who you are

Do we love God for who He is, or just what he does?

    Children sing a song in Sunday school that says Yes, Jesus Loves Me. That truth is written on every page of the Bible as we saw this week in:

● Yield Not To Temptation
● You Choose
● Yesterday Is Gone
● Yet To Come
● Yearning For The Truth
● Yet, Not With Our Heart

    What a simple little song, what a wonderful, eternal message. I am so glad that we as believers can say YES! Jesus Loves Me. The Bible tells me so.


        Today we suggest you read and study whatever the Lord has laid on your Pastors heart. Whatever scripture he uses for today’s messages were given to him by God for your specific needs

Jesus Loves me, this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to Him belongs
They are weak but He is strong

Jesus loves me, He who died
Heaven’s gate to open wide
He will wash away my sin
Let His little child come in

Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me
The Bible tells me so.
