JULY 13 FAITH IS A HEART ISSUE

ROMANS 10:8-17 “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness” (Rom. 10:10). It’s only a mind game that some people get into that embraces the concept of atheism or agnosticism. No one truly believes that in their heart. The Scripture proves this in Romans 1:18-20. Therefore, when witnessing to a professed atheist, there’s no need to discuss the existence of God. They know better. Just use the Word, and trust that the Holy Spirit will bear witness to the truth. You may think, But they don’t believe in God or the Bible. That doesn’t matter. You don’t have to believe in a sword to get killed by one. The Word is a sword (Eph. 6:17) and it will work regardless of what they say they believe if you’ll use it in faith. You must count on the Lord to deal with their hearts. It’s with the heart that man believes. Faith is not a head issue, but a heart issue. If we get sidetracked from speaking to a person’s heart, we lose the convicting power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit works on hearts, but that doesn’t mean that faith doesn’t make sense—it’s the ultimate wisdom. However, faith will always be a heart issue. No one will ever be argued into accepting the Lord. God called us to be witnesses, not judges or the jury. Just tell people what God has done for you, and let the Holy Spirit do His job. He’ll draw all men unto Jesus through working on their hearts.
