Excerpt from Ministry Reading:
“The Way for a Christian to Mature in Life—
Turning To the Spirit”:
THE HEART BEING THE GATEWAY
Those who study the Bible all agree that God’s Spirit and God’s life being in our spirit means that they are in the intuition and fellowship of our spirit, our most central part. But the spirit of man not only has the intuition and the fellowship; it also has the conscience. Hence, God’s Spirit and life, which are in our spirit, also touch our heart. When God’s Spirit and life spread from our spirit, they go through our heart. Therefore, our heart is the key, the gateway. Whether God’s Spirit and life within us can spread to our mind, emotion, and will depends upon whether our heart allows God to pass through it.
When a person is saved, God enters into him and becomes one with him. Before a person is saved, he lives in his mind, emotion, will, and conscience. This is where he is. Once he is saved, God enters into him. Which part of him is God in? God is in his spirit. However, there is something between God and man. This something is the heart. Thus, everything depends upon whether our heart is turned to the Lord or away from the Lord. When our heart is turned away from the Lord, then we are turned away from the Lord. When our heart is turned to the Lord, we are turned to the Lord.
Second Corinthians 3:16 says, “Whenever their heart turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.” Why is it that whenever the heart turns to the Lord, the veil is removed? The reason is that man’s turned-away heart is the veil. If a person has his back toward us, he cannot see us. That is the veil. When the heart is turned to the Lord, man is face to face with the Lord, and naturally, the veil is taken away. Even though many of us are saved and have the Lord in our spirit, our heart often separates us from the Lord. In a sense the Lord is on the inside, we are on the outside, and the heart is between us so that we and the Lord cannot be face to face. Thus, everything depends upon where our heart is facing.
When our heart is toward the Lord, there are no problems. We and the Lord are face to face. But when our heart is turned away from the Lord, then we are turned away from the Lord, and spontaneously, there is no communication with the Lord. Therefore, the heart is an important gateway.
