With All Your Heart

Re: Verse reading – Jeremiah 29:1-14 (day four)
Verse 29:13 says, “You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.  The key word in this verse is ‘when’…when you search for Me with all your heart.  God will not accept halfhearted attempts at prayer.  He will not accept less than our all.  Often, people are told that all they have to do to be saved is to accept Jesus…one prayer and we are saved for life and eternity.  Not so.  Jesus expects not only our repentance from sin, but He wants our life!  Galatians 2:20 says, I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”  Our life is not our own…when Christ comes into our heart, we are completely His!
