American author David W. Augsburger whose works revolve around Christianity once wrote, “An open ear is the only believable sign of an open heart.”
This principle is important in all of our relationships. In our families. Communities. And professions. Openness is also vital in spiritual relationships. On this Lord’s Day it is important that we enter into worship with an attitude of openness.
Open your Bible and read.
Open your mind and think.
Open your heart and believe.
Open your mouth and sing.
Open your ears and listen.
Open your spiritual eyes and see Jesus on the cross.
Open your spirit and pray.
Open your wallet and give.
Open your hand to a guest.
Open your will to God’s.
Open your life to Jesus and obey.
Are you open? Or closed?
–Ken Weliever, The Preacherman
