Good morning everyone,
When you think of circumcision, you might think of a surgical procedure that is used for religious, cultural or health reasons. It involves an incision of sorts but instead of the physical aspect, I want to focus on the Spiritual aspect! Philippians 3:3 says, 'For we are the circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh.' Colossians 2:11 says, 'In Him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ.' Christ Jesus doesn't care about you using your body to identify the connection with Him near as much as He wants you to let Him take a scalpel to your heart and cut out anything that keeps you from Him. He wants to transform your heart so that you are connected with Him by the core of who you are and not how you look! So many of us get tied up in our physical looks and we overlook the beauty of a 'circumcised heart.! Have you ever met someone that has, what I call, an inner beauty that makes them much more attractive than their physical makeup. When we truly open up our heart letting Christ cut away all the clutter with His 'Spiritual scalpel', then we see life in a whole different perspective! Ask God to fillet your heart so that He can perform 'open heart surgery' on you so you can connect with folks in a way that is pleasing to Him. You will never be the same!!! Woo Hoo!
Your brother in Christ,
