31 Days to His Heart :: Jesus Embodies His Holy Heart {Day #11}

31 Days Button
Thank you for visiting Fan the Flame!
I’m humbly treading the hallowed ground of the Heart of God for the 31 days of October.  First we look deep into the Beauty of His heart, shown through God the Father and His Son Jesus, then, we peer into the fragile and yet powerful role of our own hearts as we seek His and learn to live it in this world.  To read the entire series go{here} 31 Days to His Heart.
May YOU be blessed with a touch of Him TODAY…He who desires and is Fully Worthy of ALL of our hearts!
Come, Let’s bow before His Holy Heart brought so very low and near…

Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

I can only say this, friends, it is Day #11, and I am just speechless, wordless, each time I contemplate this, this…heart.  I hit a wall of utter inability to describe what is beyond description.

In Day #3 we talked about how His heart is holy.  All that comes from it is perfect, higher, best of bests…but a holy heart alone would not have sent a Messiah who in all his holiness would die that all the poor, helpless ones, all of us, might touch his holiness.

A heart that is holy and for relationship bound in everlasting love and acting in mercy and grace…it takes all of these for holiness to come near.  For holiness to be a gift bestowed and draw all who would receive into the sweet intimate of awed and hushed worship.

Knee bowed and heart full…I come and behold God of very God, this Jesus, making himself lowest of lows and pouring out the holy love of eternity, every last bit, holding nothing back, that all that it is to be holy would be all that it is to love.

I pray, friend, you are, with me, realizing the infinite depths of this heart that to peer in gazing faith reveal only a greater wealth fit for nothing less than all of eternity’s knowing…

…And that this eternity’s pursuit would become the consuming fire to fuel life’s true living.

Praying HIs Heart
Lord Jesus,  I stand in awe of you.  I bow with compelled, stunned silence.  I cannot begin to grasp high and lifted up, speaking world into existence, YOU, humbling to submit to all that sets a world gone wrong against You. And You, obedient to death, death on a cross, bringing about a holiness that can be given as gift and exalting You as the giver of that gift.  Oh, for mind, heart, soul all-of-me gaze fixed upon the Majesty of the gift of Your holy heart and for humility without measure to be transformed by You, Your Life, and ultimately, Your heart.  I lay my head on your lap and plead for more of You, because You long to give it, In Your Name above Every Name, Jesus Christ, fully able, I pray, Amen.
