What’s in your heart? The words that come out of your mouth – they are what are in your heart. If you curse me, belittle me, or insult me – I know that love for me is not in your heart. Matthew 15:18-20 makes this clear – “But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man ‘unclean.’ For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what make a man ‘unclean’; but eating with unwashed hands does not make him ‘unclean.’ ” (Matthew 15:18-20 NIV84)
If you are “all in” your heart has changed. What comes out of your mouth should be changing as you live by faith in the risen savior, Jesus Christ, and allow His love which has been poured out into the heart of every believer. “And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.”(Romans 5:5 NIV84)
