Reflect The Heart Of Jesus

Romans 8:17 BSB, “And if we are children, then we are heirs: heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ—if indeed we suffer with Him, so that we may also be glorified with Him.”

With everyone confined to their homes, there has of course been an increase in activity on social media. I guess people are looking for an outlet. Yesterday I was noticing that there is a challenge on Facebook called, “The 1st Born Challenge”. People are posting pictures of themselves with their first born child and posing the question, “Do we look alike?” Everyone is supposed to comment and say rather or not the person and their firstborn child look alike. I even saw a few people repeat the challenge with their second born child. While some of these facebookers did look like their children, some did not.

After viewing quite a few of these posts, the thought popped into my head, if we as Christians could place our hearts next to the heart of Jesus, “Would they look alike?” Would the love of Christ be evident in our hearts? Would others be able to tell we are heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ? Our earthly bodies can easily resemble our earthly parents on the outside, however our relationship with the Lord goes beyond the surface. Our lifestyles must show others that we are His children. People look at the outside, but God can see what is inside of our hearts.

Psalm 139:1, “O LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me.”

1 Samuel 16:7, “…People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

As Christians, may our hearts be a true reflection of the heart of Jesus in all we say and do. Even when we fall short, may we be so close to our Savior, that we respond to the convictions of the Holy Spirit, quickly repent and choose Jesus above all else.

We can ask ourselves these questions daily… “Does my heart look like the heart of Jesus?” “Is my lifestyle a reflection of who Jesus is and does it show my commitment to Him?”

  1. Amen, Jesus is above all else! God I thank You for Dawn and the mighty way You are using her to get Your word out in such a strong and loving way. May Your light continue to shine through her as she remains Your faithful servant. In Jesus name.

  2. Amen amen. Such a wonderful post. Some people just shine with the spirit. I went into a restaurant, this has actually happened twice now, and this woman was working so hard, talking and singing to herself and I said to her, “Boy I can see that you truly love the Lord”. She of course started talking about how good our Lord is, not afraid to be a witness in front of others. It is amazing to me how you can tell sometimes even with complete strangers. Great verses and wonderful post. Love you. Please stay safe. Joni 💕😘❤️💕

    1. I’m working toward it too. It’s a daily process. Your comment just brought to my mind, 2 Corinthians 3:18 ”But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

  3. Your post reminds me of the song that states, “A heart like yours is my desire. Give me a heart like yours.” This has always been a prayer of mine. I think we should be posting more prayers and encouragements on the social media rather than silly games.

  6. I love this. It reminded me of James 1:22-25. “However, become doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves with false reasoning. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, this one is like a man looking at his own face in a mirror. For he looks at himself, and he goes away and immediately forgets what sort of person he is. But the one who peers into the perfect law that belongs to freedom and continues in it has become, not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work; and he will be happy in what he does.” We need to use the Bible to evaluate ourselves constantly! ❤
