Tune Our Hearts

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”
Matthew 5:48 King James Version

One of the definitions for perfect in Webster’s Dictionary is “being entirely without fault or defect”.  We know that we are not and never will be perfect according to this definition.  God knows that we aren’t perfect and will never be perfect in this world.

However, we can be perfect in our hearts if we will give unconditional love to others.  God would not have told us to be perfect if it was impossible to do.  We can’t do this in our own strength.  We must allow Jesus to control our hearts so that we can love others unconditionally through Him.

We are to love others unconditionally just as He loves us.  I think if we are honest with ourselves we will have to admit that we don’t always love others unconditionally like He loves us and as He has commanded us to love others.  Just as the old violin was tuned by its master to play a sweet melody, so our hearts must be tuned by Jesus.

Unless we yield ourselves to Jesus and let Him work in our hearts and lives we will never be perfected in our love for others.  Heavenly Father, we ask that You would please forgive us for not loving others unconditionally.  Jesus, we ask You to please tune our hearts so that we can be perfected in our love for others.  Amen.
