Jesus First

Date – August 25,2020
By – Anne Barcus
Chapter read – 1 John 5
SCRIPTURE:  1 John 5:21. “Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.”

OBSERVATION:  The song, “Nothing Between My Soul and the Savior” has been living in my head. The second verse begins, “Nothing between like worldly pleasure; habits of life, though harmless they seem.” I have a history of a “Heart Hotel” where a plethora of subjects passed through and stayed awhile. My desire is a heart stalwart for God only. Even if it’s just a “little” issue or appears harmless if I see it more clearly than God it has to go.

APPLICATION: I need the Holy Spirit to be active and “on duty”, guarding my heart for holiness. I need to carefully monitor what passes through my mind and heart.

PRAYER:  God, You purified my heart – give me the grace to guard it from even the “small good” things which could crowd between You and me
