How are you building your heart house? It is the most important house you live in. Many people desire to live in a good, strong house that won't easily fall into decay, but they don't even consider the condition of their heart houses.
It is important to build a heart house that will last until you reach heaven. The only way to do this is to build according to God's instruction, most of which comes to us directly from His Word.
We must consider the following:
1. Your treasure must be in heaven in order for your heart house to be built in a way that will last.
Matthew 6:20-21 "But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
2. Jesus must be the foundation. He is the only way to heaven.
I Corinthians 3:10-11 "According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."
3. Jesus will help our walls to be fitly framed.
Ephesians 2:21 "In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto a holy temple in the Lord:"
4. God's hand will be the roof to cover your head. You can't get any better protection than this.
Exodus 33:22 "...and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:"
The Master-Builder, Christ, can build your heart house correctly in an instant, if you'll let Him. Then He must live in it and all sin must stay out. Every day, Jesus will help us keep sin out. In this way, we will have a strong heart house that will last until we reach heaven.
