…the heart

It is not February 23, though it does look like it outside. I’m glad I didn’t realize I was reading the wrong devotional. This is what I read this morning:

“The gospel gap doesn’t stay empty. If we do not live with a gospel-shaped, Christ-confident, and change-committed Christianity, that hole will get filled with other things… Whenever we are missing the message of Christ’s indwelling work to progressively transform us, the hole will be filled by a Christian lifestyle that focuses more on externals than the heart.”

Written by Timothy S. Lane and Paul David Tripp quoted from Heart of the Matter, a great devotional book. Find it on page 54 if you have it.
