Reflections On Christ And His New Dance (1)

The Old Testament reveals a deep problem of the human heart: it was desperately wicked. There was no love in it. After the fall of man in the garden, it had become a loveless, lustful, proud and self-seeking heart. Pleasing God could never come easy to that heart... But God, unchanging as always, looked down in love, and sent us a saviour, Jesus Christ. By His great Grace, we are recipients of the most elaborate gift of all: new hearts. Hearts capable of love, and of loving in the manner of God. Self-less love.

My Sweet Tooth Had A Dagger In My Heart

I didn't think of it this way before, but I realised that even in our Christian walk, Christ seems to be the most maligned choice. No human chooses Christ easily, even though He is the healthiest choice. The mere fact that His living water does not tingle our taste buds mean we rather go for the sweetness of other things, and then come for a bath later.
