The heart of man is the spirit of the man. The spirit is the core of the man’s being. Man is a spirit, he has a soul and lives in a body. The soul is not the man; it is his possession. The body is not the man; that is where he lives. I Thessalonians 5:23
“My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.” – Proverbs 23:26
God demands for a man’s heart not anything that he has. God is saying to man; give me your spirit. Be totally sold out to me. Wherever the heart is, that is where the soul and the body will gravitate to. When the heart is given to God, the man is totally sold out to Him. When one’s heart is given to God, it is evident:
- The thoughts will reflect it;
- The words will show it;
- The actions will demonstrate it.
You cannot be totally sold out to God theoretically. You cannot give your heart to God and not know; you cannot be totally sold out to God and the people around you will not know. When your decisions in all things are influenced by your love for God and the advancement of His kingdom; it is a clear indication that you are sold out to Him. When all that matters to you is God and the advancement of His purpose on the earth; some people may call you a fanatic but the truth about you is that you are totally sold out to Him.
God did not hold anything back to demonstrate His love for you, you cannot hold anything back and still claim to love God. The soul and the body of man will never be able to keep the commandment of God if the spirit is not in agreement.
Those who are totally sold out to God and His kingdom are the ones that emerge giants in the kingdom.
