Matthew 15-16~ Day 8~ Not just lip service!

"This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me." (15:8)

How convicting is that?!  I know I have been guilty of that at times in my life!  It's easy to say, "Oh, what a beautiful sunset!  God is a master artist!" or "Wow! A baby!  What a miracle form God!"

But to live with God as the priority in my life always....that requires more than just talk!  I like how one fellow reader put it the other day, "The world is pulling us to live in it, and Jesus is pulling our hearts to him."  I commented back that I want Jesus to win that tug-a-war in my life!

I have found that the more I keep reading his Word regularly, the more I think about him.  This reading plan has helped me draw closer to Him and has even changed the worship time for me at church on Sundays.  I have a different mindset when I come to the "throne room" to sing my praises to him.

I pray that my heart will continue to draw near to Jesus and that I don't revert to just giving him lip service.  If I found what works, I better keep doing it!!.....I better keep reading!!😄
