From the Heart
by Randy Chambers, 2009-07-03
Psalm 119:11, KJV: Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might
not sin against thee.
Jesus told his disciples that it is not what a man puts in his mouth that makes him
clean or unclean, but that which comes out of the mouth. Because, "the things that
come out of the mouth come from the heart." There are many reasons to memorize
scripture: so we won't sin; to be equipped to tell others about our faith, and more. One
very good reason is so that what comes out of our mouths, will be evidence of what has
been put into the heart. The more we fill ourselves with God's Word, the more it will
transform our thinking, words and deeds to show evidence of He who resides in us.
