The Journey Readings: Week 141… and… grace… a matter of the heart…

For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly,
nor is circumcision outward and physical. But a Jew
is one inwardly, and circumcision a matter of the heart,
by the Spirit, not the letter.
Romans 2:28-29 ESV
God’s grace… the gift which saves…

unless it works its way to the heart…
it hasn’t been received…

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything,
but only faith working through love.
Galatians 5:6 ESV

Jesus made the Way… for the Holy Spirit to come… and circumcise our hearts…
without this grace in our hearts… our outward deeds… abilities… don’t matter…
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love,
I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers,
and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have faith,
so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned,
but have not love, I gain nothing.
1 Corinthians 13:1-3 ESV
God is Love
the Spirit is God…
and without Love…
nothing matters…
Has grace worked its way into your heart…?
