How many times have you heard someone say that they knew something in their head but not in their heart? As we seek God through his word, we learn true things he has said. God loves the world. He did something about it. We can trust him. He wants to help us. The list goes on…
But as we walk away from reading, a bible study, or a church service, sometimes we have “learned” a new thing without internalizing it. That is, we walk away with new information, but not with new life.
And other times, we hear something from God and it cuts us to the heart. We realize the gravity of this new reality. And our lives change forever.
What’s the difference between these two results? Can we do anything about it?
