How do you understand what Christ has in His heart?

The vast majority of people have many acquaintances, but we all have a need to be known and understood by those we love.

Christian Reflections - How do you understand what Christ has in His heart?
How do you understand what Christ has in His heart?

Just as you do not want to be known only by the superficial details of what you appear to be, it is not enough to know about Christ. He wants and desires us to be aware of how He thinks and feels, what is important to Him, and what His purposes are for us.

Of course, it is impossible for us to know the whole mind of the Lord. In Isaiah 55:9; He tells us: “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” The mind of the Lord is so great that we will never be able to fully understand Him in this life.

The Heart of Christ

We can better understand the heart of Christ and his nature, seeking him and learning day by day from his Word. If we truly desire to walk in his ways, it is necessary to know him fully.

We get to know our friends better by sharing more experiences together. Likewise, we will also understand Christ better the longer we walk in His ways and deepen our understanding of what He has manifested about Himself in His Word.

God wants you to seek him with all your heart and promises that if you do, you will find him (Jer 29:13). That is why the next time you feel the need to be understood better, go to the One who understands you perfectly. But more importantly, ask him to help you get to know him better.

But if you seek Jehovah your God from there, you will find him, if you seek him with all your heart and all your soul. (Deuteronomy 4:29)
