Wednesdays with Will – Tear Your Heart
How do you express remorse? In the Bible people would often tear their clothes to pieces. For example, people would often tear their clothes after hearing that a loved one had died. This would demonstrate that their hearts were emotionally torn.
In Joel 2:12, God was tired of seeing people try to show the world that they were sorry for their sins, when in reality their hearts were not torn over what they had done. When we live life by sight, this is exactly what we do. We want the world to think we are good spiritually, but deep down inside we are not okay. We fool the world, but the Bible says we do not fool God. He sees our heart. When we live by faith, the things that break God’s heart, will break our heart, and our repentance will be genuine.
Therefore, Live by Faith and Not by Sight.
