Key Text: 2 Chronicles 15:17 KJV - But the high places were not taken away out of Israel: nevertheless, the heart of Asa was perfect all his days.
You may be doing a righteous work in the house of God without heart perfection or holiness. But without holiness no man shall see the Lord. Although Asa could not remove the high places which was part of his assignment, he worked with a perfect heart. God is more concerned about the life or walk of his children than their work. In summary, life is better than ministry.
It is not the quantum of work you are able to do for the Lord that matters but the quality of life you live before Him. Your life is a true reflection of your heart. It is written: "... for out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh", and "As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man" - Matthew 12:34; Proverbs 27:19.
Beloved, is your heart right with God? In your daily walk with God let your hands be clean before men and your heart pure before the Lord. Your work or sacrifice will not be accepted without a holy life. It’s a waste of time, running up and down in the name of serving God, when your life is not right with Him. Examine your life today, and repent of every evil way.
Prayer: O Lord, beautify my life with true holiness as I labour in the vineyard of the Lord, in Jesus name. Amen.
Reflection: Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life - Proverbs 4:23.
