A Perfect Heart

Key Verse

“I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart” (Psalm 101:2).

TEXT — Psalm 101:1-8


The average cost of a heart transplant, including the need for immunosuppressant drugs after the surgery, is about $864,700. Yet, the best heart transplant a man can receive, comes from God and costs him nothing; and the new heart will never fail.

Walking before God with a perfect heart is an ideal decision. It is the best thing a heaven-bound believer should aspire and pray for at all times. This psalm is reflective of the psalmist’s deep-seated affection towards God and the cherished desire to continue a lifelong unbroken fellowship with Him.

To think of walking within our house with a perfect heart is the noblest thing a believer can covet. For when you are in your house, where no one is watching you, it is easy to lose focus and do those things that displease God in secret. It takes a real heart transformation for a man or woman to live right both in secret and in the open. The experience is called heart circumcision, sanctification, holiness or Christian perfection.

The message and requirement of holiness for every believer has been from the beginning. God the Father, Jesus the Sanctifier and the Holy Spirit of God are all holy. The Church, therefore, is called unto holiness, as the Bride of Christ. Servants of God from Abraham, Moses, the priests and prophets of the Old Testament, as well as all members of the commonwealth of believers are called upon to demonstrate true holiness. The New Testament teaches sanctification and a life of separation from sin. The Church is to be presented as a living sacrifice, a glorious church without spot or wrinkle (Ephesians 5:26,27).

Thought for the day

There is no new life without a new heart.
