Be stiff-necked no longer
“Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer.”
When we circumcise our hearts, we would no longer have a haughty and stubborn personality.
2. Heart is Circumcised to Love the LORD
“And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.”
3. Lest His Fury Come
“For thus says the Lord to the men of Judah and Jerusalem: “Break up your fallow ground, And do not sow among thorns. Circumcise yourselves to the Lord, And take away the foreskins of your hearts, You men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, Lest My fury come forth like fire, And burn so that no one can quench it, Because of the evil of your doings.””
God will become angry with our evil ways and punishment will follow if we are unwilling to do spiritual surgery on our heart.
4. Praise is from God
“For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.”
Being a child of God is because of changes of the heart – the inward man, not because of actions we have taken or religious ceremonies we have taken part in, but because of how God has changed the heart.
5. The More Complete We Are
The more our changed heart removes sin from our lives, the more complete we are in Christ.
“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”
How full are you in Him?
Have you had the circumcision of the heart?
Precious Moments in the Wilderness include ongoing circumcision of the heart.
Move on kingdom assignments out of a circumcised heart ~ that’s alignment to Christ.
