The Heart: A Contrite Heart

Here is another post on the heart by Bessie, taken from a column entitled "The Heart" which was published in The Hammer (a CCM magazine) years ago. I will be posting a few more in the future.

A Contrite Heart

by Bessie Wilson

For this is what the high and lofty One says—he who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.” (Isaiah 57:15)

God is very explicit in His Word regarding the conditions under which He reveals Himself to man. He is transcendent (that is, He is above and beyond His creation). He is also immanent (indwelling). He chooses to indwell those who are contrite and lowly in spirit.

Why does God emphasize the heart as the important part of man? “I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve”(Jeremiah 17:10).

Are You Literate?

Are you literate?

Or better, can you read?

Or better, do you read?

If the answer is “yes,” to any of the above, when was the last time you read all of the New Testament, or any of the New Testament? Did you understand what you read?

Changing the World

From 1945 to 1956 I was on active duty in the US Navy. I was a patriot, a Christian from 1947, and loved my country, the Navy, and sea duty. I saw action in the Korean War from 1950-1953.

In 1956 I resigned my commission realizing that my faithful service in the Navy would not change the world, but preaching the gospel would.

On Tuesday night it was again apparent to me that living and preaching the gospel is the solution, not he the election of one of two natural men. (I did vote, but not for either presidential candidate.)

Please join me (and many others) in proclaiming the good news. Feel free to ask me how.

I teach evangelism in my home (114 S. Howard Street, Moscow, ID) on Saturdays at 3:00 PM. See you there.


In the Lord Jesus Christ,
