An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

The Thinking Heart

(Pro 23:7 KJV) For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

Why is regeneration so important?  Regeneration is a big word that is synonymous with the phrase “born again”.  In spite of the blasphemous way in which some advertisers us the term, it comes from the mouth of Jesus. 
(Joh 3:3 KJV) Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Seeing is colored by our vision.  I am mildly color blind.  Because I am aware of that I avoid certain vague greenish/brownish colors because I can’t really tell them apart.  I look forward to the resurrection because I will then be able to find out how beautiful God’s creation really is.  Until then it is impossible. 

In the same way I cannot see the beauty of salvation until the color blindness, or sin, of my heart is dealt with.

So?  Christians think different.  We see different.  We act different.  It starts in the heart that is able to think.
