Revelation 2:23 ."....And all the churches shall know that I Am He Who examines the minds and HEARTS. And I will give to each one of you according to your work."
Physical heart surgery is "duck soup" compared to spiritual heart surgery. Throughout my open heart surgery and 8 weeks of , things have gone amazingly well. However, the heart monitor I wore for a month revealed concerning heart rhythm issues. This means further tests with possible heart ablation or, worse case scenario, I will need a pacemaker.
Prior to any physical heart concerns, the "examination of the Spirit" unveiled to me my arrogance! You may prefer pride, but I prefer arrogance. "Pride" may be used in a good way. Arrogance cannot. This latest heart issue has revealed my spiritual heart issue as arrogance on steroids.
