A heart like Jesus’s is a heart that will make life better for everyone. I do not truly love anyone, although, at times, I really would like to show love and compassion toward all people.
My heart and mind are full of unwanted and unnecessary junk, and I am trying to replace that garbage in my life with something valuable from the bible. I read scriptures from the bible, but five minutes after I read the scriptures, I forgot what I read.
There is some Godly stuff in me that God installed in me before I was born, but I find myself fighting against that knowledge God instilled in me. Unless Jesus or someone shows or tells me how to get a heart like Jesus, I will be in big trouble.
And it is not like I want to be a low life; I cannot help myself. I think of decent stuff I could do for people and myself, but I rarely ever get around to doing the things I should and need to do. When I get to heaven, it will only be because of the grace of God.
I see a lot of beauty in this world; some people may not be able to notice it because they already have the holy spirit living in their lives, and their minds are on other Godly things. But since Jesus personally showed me that I was indeed the lowest form of life on this earth, now everything God created is beautiful to me.
I may tell someone I am going to help them with a particular task with good intentions, but then I go and forget about what I was supposed to do. When I see them again, they look at me as if I am the biggest liar on the planet, and when I realize what I have done, I feel sad and wrong.
I still get angry when someone does or say something to me or about me that I do not like. I go around angry and upset for about an hour; before I calm down, I can feel my blood pressure rising. I get upset and start sweating; this only hurts me, so why am I still doing it?
Can you see the day when someone intentionally burns down your home while you and your family are not home? They take all of your family belongings. When you discover what has happened, you tell the assailants you are not angry at them, you still love them, and ask Jesus to forgive them for what they just did to you and your family. Now that would be a heart like Jesus.
Unfortunately, I and some other people do not have a heart like Jesus, but that will not keep us from trying to be more like Jesus with our weak hearts and minds. I do not know what it takes to have a heart like Jesus, but I think it would be wonderful if we could handle it.
Allowing Jesus to change our hearts and minds will not be difficult. But that is what I think it is going to take for me to have a heart like Jesus. If you already have a heart like Jesus, then you are blessed; I wish I were in your shoes.
I heard a song titled “A Heart Like Your,” sung by CeCe Winans; that is where I got the idea for this post. I know I will have to change my life to have a heart like Jesus.
