My Heart, Christ’s Home

“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.”
Ephesians 3:16-17

There is a famous booklet called “My Heart, Christ’s Home” written by Robert Munger. The author used a house as a metaphor for our heart. He shares how excited we are to first let Christ into our heart. Like a home, we visit with Him in the living room, treating Him as our guest. He is in our home. However, most of us stop there and never make Him at home. He isn’t part of our more intimate, personal lives. After a while, we get busy with life and quit spending time with Him. Soon we ignore Christ, running out of the house in the morning, never even talking to Him. The purpose of the book was to show us that knowing Christ is more than an occasional encounter. It is more than simply inviting Him into our heart. Knowing Christ is having intimate fellowship with Him. Paul prayed that the Ephesians would allow Christ to dwell in their hearts. This is where strength for our inner being comes from. John tells us that Christ is knocking on the door of our heart and wants to fellowship with us. Jesus told us that if we love Him, that He and His Father would come and make their home with us. Why not let Him? Give Him complete control of your life and access to all parts of your being. Today make your heart Christ’s home.

Dear Jesus, I want my heart to be Your home. Check out every room, every closet, even the basement. Be in complete charge of all I have and all I do. Be the ruler of my heart and make it Your home. In Jesus’ name.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
