TOPIC: The Heart Matters

TEXT: John 7:22 ‘Moses, therefore, gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man.’

MESSAGE FOR THE DAY: 10th June 2022 | Andrew Wommack Devotional — The Heart Matters

The covenant of circumcision was given to Abram in Gen. 17:9-14. In v. 14, the Lord said that any man who did not carry this sign of the covenant in his flesh was to be killed. This placed great importance on the act of circumcision. Paul says in Rom. 4:3-13, that Abraham had already been justified by faith before he was circumcised. It was Abram’s faith that saved him at least 13 years before the Lord commanded Abram to be circumcised.

The Jews had focused on the outward act of obedience instead of the inward act of faith that caused Abraham to be obedient. This was the source of the contention between Jesus and the religious leaders too. They were emphasizing all the outward acts that the Lord had commanded and were totally disregarding the motives of the heart. Jesus was saying that if an individual would cleanse his heart, then his actions would inevitably change too.

The truth of salvation by faith had been lost in Judaism, and even though many of the Jews had come to put faith in Jesus as their Savior, they were trying to mix faith and the keeping of the commandments together as a requirement for salvation.

The condition of a person’s flesh is not the important thing. It doesn’t matter if that flesh is circumcised or holy. It is the condition of the spirit that matters with God. Today the act of circumcision is not the issue, but acts of holiness are still deemed by many as essential for receiving salvation. This same legalistic thinking lives on today in the doctrine of water baptism, church membership, and other acts of holiness that some preach are necessary for salvation. Faith alone in the love of God, as expressed through Jesus, is the only thing that God demands justification. Religious rites mean nothing. The only thing that counts is becoming a new creation.

Dear Father,
In the name of Jesus, I come to you. I accept that I am not in tune with You and that I desire to be. Please forgive me for all of my sins. According to the Bible, if I confess with my lips, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, I will be saved.
