From the head to the heart

Posted by appolus on November 30, 2017

There is roughly 12 inches between the brain and the heart. In the life of faith this distance is covered by actual experience. We can have a head knowledge of many subjects but until we experience the subject or the situation it is merely theory. I could be an apple expert, know everything about the apple and never have actually ate an apple. A faith untested is like a car never driven. The point of a car is to take us from one place to another, the point of our faith is to take us deeper into the heart of God. In addition to having a car we need the fuel to propel the car. A car without fuel would be like a bird without wings. Faith without works is dead.
 
The Holy Spirit is the wind that propels us forward. He is the fuel that runs the engine. He is vital to forward motion. A sail boat without wind in the middle of the ocean is carried wherever the current takes it. If we live in this life without the direction of the Holy Spirit then we will be carried by the influence of the world and by our personal natures. This is why trials and storms in our lives actually promote growth. If we allow ourselves to run with the wind in the midst of these storms we can cover great distances in a shorter amount of time. The journey from the head to the heart is a difficult one, but vital.
