Keep Your Heart Right

“Rightly did the Puritan John Flavel say, ‘The keeping and right managing of the heart in every condition is the great business of the Christian’s life.’  …’Keep thine heart with all diligence.’ Guard it jealously as the dwelling place of Him to whom you have given it. Guard it with the utmost vigilance, for not only is there the enemy without seeking entrance, but there is a traitor within desirous of dominion.  The Hebrew for ‘with all diligence’ literally rendered is ‘above all’; above all the concerns of our outward life, careful as we should be as to that, it is before the eyes of men, whereas the heart is the object of God’s holy gaze.” –A.W. Pink “Practical Christianity” pp. 100, 103

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
