“Following Jesus and Loving People”


The first king of Israel, Saul, started well but ended in disgrace. After a foolish disobedience, he was rebuked by the Prophet Samuel who said, “But now your kingdom will not endure; the Lord has sought out a man after his own heart and appointed him leader of his people, because you have not kept the Lord’s command” (I Sam. 13:14). Saul failed because he failed to guard his heart. Pride crept in until it permeated everything.

As I read this I was again challenged by the words, “a man after his (God’s) own heart”. My prayer is, “God make us people you are pleased to draw near and bless with grace…because our hearts are seeking and pursuing you.” Guarding and guiding our hearts toward the Lord and his kingdom is a full-time endeavor. In these last days (as revealed in the Bible) the danger of drifting and turning away is ever present. However, the good news is that God is greater than our hearts and knows how to keep us and to present us to himself without spot or wrinkle.

David, the shepherd king was far from perfect, but God could work in David’s life and circumstances because his heart continually sought the Lord. While Saul ended in disgrace, David enjoyed the presence of God and ended life in victory. Be a person after God’s heart and enjoy your relationship with him.  Obey the great commandment to love him with all you heart, soul and mind (Matt. 22:37). In this way you will live well and end well.
