Daily Fountain 2017 - Incorruptible Beauty - II






Wednesday March 29

Bible Reading:     1 Peter 3: 8 - 12

Topic:         Incorruptible Beauty (II)

Yesterday, the Lord revealed to us that the beauty which comes from the "hidden person of the heart" is incorruptible, radiates in a person's life and attracts people to the Lord Jesus Christ.

This beauty primarily comes from the heart. Jesus said "a good man brings good things out of the good stored  up in his heart and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh" Lk. 6: 45

This means that our words and actions are largely determined by our thought pattern.

Either we curse or bless, it comes from the heart.

For your hidden man of the heart to be beautiful, you must experience a transformation or renewal of your mind (Rom. 12: 2)

These practical steps must be taken.

We achieve this by examining ourselves, identifying, confessing and repenting of the sins in our lives and inviting Jesus to rule as Lord and Saviour of our lives (Isa. 1: 18; John 1: 12 - 13; 2 Cor. 1: 3 - 5; 1 John 1: 8 - 9, 2: 1 - 2). We must also meditate on God's Word and ask the Holy Spirit to empower us to live godly lives.

Prayer:
Lord Jesus, take my life and let it be consecrated to Thee, take my heart and let it be Your Royal Throne, Amen.

Memory verse:   1 Pet. 3: 10
"For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil and his lips that they speak no guile"
