Daily Devotion: A True Heart

Bible Reading: Hebrews 10:11-25

Key Verse: Verse 22 - “Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

Key Words: Let us draw near with a true heart

The key to having full assurance comes from “drawing near to God with a true heart.” It seems being far away from God doesn’t work too well in producing full assurance.

A guy was watching football on a Saturday afternoon. He had the remote in his hand when the phone rang. He walked over to the phone with the remote in his hand. Even while on the phone, he was interested in keeping up with the game so as not to miss any big plays. He couldn't see the TV but he figured that at least he could half listen in. He pointed the remote in the direction of the TV and attempted to turn the volume up. Nothing happened because he was too far. It's not that the remote didn't work, and it's not that the TV didn't work. He was just too far.

Sometimes Christians will say that God doesn't work when in reality the problem is that they are simply too far away from the Lord. It's not that Jesus doesn't work. It's not that the Bible doesn't work, and it's not that the Holy Spirit doesn't work. If a person is not in the vicinity, if he or she is not close to God at all, then it will certainly seem that God's way doesn't work. Closeness and intimacy with God is what provides the full experience of walking with Him.

What to do:
✞ If nothing spiritually is happening in your life, try getting closer to God.
