…let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.

Hebrews 10:22-23 NIV

Listen to Words from the Heart

Full Assurance

According to an article in the National Library of Medicine website: “Although quality assurance programming in Canada is still at an early stage of development, health professionals are increasingly being called upon to substantiate the value of the services they provide. A body of research showing wide variations in the rates of service provision and significant amounts of inappropriate care have convinced many policy makers about the need to improve quality in the Canadian health system.”

When we love someone, we want to spend time with them. We want to be in their presence, sharing our thoughts and feelings, building memories, sometimes just being silent but together. One of the mysteries of our faith is that our Creator God desires to have that kind of relationship with us. Hebrews 10:22-23 says “…let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” God has drawn us to Himself through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Because He loves us, He longs for us to spend time with him, building a relationship with Him. The sin that kept us from Him has been removed – He has cleansed our guilty conscience. So, there is nothing standing between us and Him. So, draw near to God today – He is only a prayer away. Fill your life with things that draw your thoughts and your heart towards Him. Spend time in His word, with the full assurance that faith brings. God longs for that intimacy with you.

These have been words from the heart.
