Your Heartbeat

12 Aug

Your Heartbeat…

Have you ever put a stethoscope to a rock? Probably not! But if you did, you would discover that a rock has no heartbeat. It doesn’t need one. But if you put a stethoscope to your chest, you’ll discover that you do indeed have a heartbeat because you’re not a rock.

Your heartbeat tells you that your existence can never be taken for granted or wasted. Your life is a gift. There was a first heartbeat, and there will be a last.

And if you put that stethoscope to your loved ones, your parents, your children, your co-workers, your co-ministers, you’ll find that they too have heartbeats. They will not always be there. They had a first heartbeat and they will have a last heartbeat, and only a limited number in between.

Therefore, their existence also cannot be taken for granted. Your life and your new life in salvation is God’s gift to you. What you do with it, is your gift to God.

Treasure those around you while you have them. Love them, forgive them, bless them and save them. For we are not rocks, and our greatest treasures in this world, all have heartbeats.

We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:4

Take a moment to listen to your heartbeat. Thank God for every beat, every moment of your life.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
