Who’s on the throne of your heart? What happens when you get squeezed a little? What comes out of you? Are you devoted to yourself or are you a submitted follower of God?
When we choose to be independent and rely on ourselves, we separate ourselves from God and reject His rule over us. What’s the problem with that? Simply put, the problem is that we are not qualified for the job. We do not naturally tend to do the best thing for everyone. Instead we look out for number one, regardless of how our decisions affect others.
While our laws restrain us from outrageous and hurtful conduct, Jesus went to the heart of every issue that came before Him. He was the greatest psychologist that ever lived. Only Jesus, with His fundamental philosophy of love and sacrifice, could fix what was broken in us and deliver us from ourselves.
This teaching helps us not only appreciate how God did this, but also outlines how we can live according to the true nature of God instead of our natural narcissistic tendencies. Jesus is the answer for the healing of our minds and souls, restoring us and placing God securely on the thrones of our hearts again. Don’t miss this one!
