Our Heart's Beat

...Freely you have received, freely give” ~ Matthew 10:8
God—the creator of life, is teaching us everyday, through His creation how we are to live. Take the heart for example; it functions physically in the exact same way God would have us function spiritually. The heart has two valves, one valve that pumps life giving blood in to the heart and one that sends that life giving blood back out to the body. God created us the same way, like a heart's beat we are created to receive from our Heavenly Father, and then called to give all that we have received to others. If we do not take time to receive we will run dry and shrivel up and die, and at the same time if we keep all we have received for ourselves, and not allow God’s love, grace and mercy to flow through us we will surely implode. Our heart does not think twice about it’s function, freely it has received—freely it gives, and in that giving and receiving we sustain life.

It's when we freely give all we have received from God that our heart's begin to beat in sync with His. As we share the blessings God has poured out upon us, understanding that He blesses us so we can bless others and as we minister to others in the same way He has ministered to us, we will experience healing of our spiritual health, the transformation of our lives. The impact of this divine heartbeat will impact the  lives of those around us, our communities and His Kingdom.

You have been treated generously, so live generously” ~ Matthew 10:8 (The Message)
