Stir up our Hearts

 

What sort of highway construction equipment do we need to “make straight…a highway for God” to enter our hearts?

Do we need bulldozers to level the stubborn I’lltakecareofitmyself” mountain range?  Scrapers to let God’s Spirit shape our life?  Graders to fill in the rough spots with the forgiveness of sins?

So, it is that we prayed:

Stir up our hearts, O Lord, to make ready the way of your only-begotten Son, that by His coming we may be enabled to serve you with pure minds.  We prayed that it would happen through Jesus Christ, our Lord who lives and rules forevermore with the Father and the Holy Spirit.  One God working in concert to build the highway needed that Christ might enter into our hearts.
