1st Samuel 18:3 says “Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as his own soul”, in the eyes of David and Jonathan they shared 1 heart; their love for each other was unbreakable. Their friendship was built upon loyalty, sacrifice, compromise and emotional attachment. Have you ever experienced a friendship so strong that your heart was one with their heart? It could be said that this is the true essence of what love is.
One of my favorite sayings is “what comes from the heart reaches the heart”, this reminds me that what I say matters and how powerful words can be. It also reminds me how fragile the heart is and how easily it can be broken. On a physical level it is the most important organ in the body, it keeps the body functioning as God intended. On a spiritual level when you give your heart to the Father you experience peace, strength, new life, new purpose, a new sense of self and real love.
It is through the heart of Jesus our hearts are intricately knitted to the heart of the Father. The transforming love of Jesus changes our stony hearts into hearts of flesh, the old man is shed; a new man is born into the light of love. The love that abides in the heart of Jesus the Christ is transferred to the hearts of those who will accept His love. When we allow the transformation to take place in our lives, the heart of God flows through Jesus to reach the hearts of His children. This is the truth of heart to heart.
