There is a wonderful thing in the human being that many ignore and it is "to have Jesus in the heart"
Having Jesus in our hearts implies a series of benefits and also avoids many evils. Some think it is not necessary because Jesus loves and forgives everyone regardless of the condition. However, for this there are some guidelines that we must follow and that so far many ignore.
Jesus forgives of course that he forgives without looking at the condition of sin but for Jesus to forgive there must be repentance on the part of man because without Jesus he could not forgive.
When repentance arises we give rise to something new in our life and it is that from that forgiveness we begin to change and little by little we are introducing our lord into our hearts and we begin to fill ourselves with joy and peace.
Jeremiah 24: 7
7 And I will give them my heart to know that I am Jehovah; and they shall be my people, and I will be their God; because they will come back to me with all their heart. (RVR1960)
In that sense there is an exchange between God and man and we begin to recognize that He is the owner of our hearts and our lives since we have decided to seek him with all our hearts.
We must also be aware that our soul needs to be saved and we need to participate in that salvation.
And in no other is there salvation; because there is no other name under heaven, given to men, in which we can be saved (United Bible Societies) (UBS)
The only one who can offer salvation is Jesus Christ was the only one perfect before the father because He is the incarnate verb and through Him we attain salvation and there is no other name given to men on this earth so that He can grant salvation to man.
Having Jesus in our hearts gives us the blessing and wisdom to walk on the road. Having Jesus in our hearts frees us from so many things that dishonors God. For example, one of the problems of this humanity is that they are devoid of God because of Jesus' absence in their hearts and this leads them to a common misery of misery and slavery.
Salomon was one of the wisest men in the Bible because he asked God for wisdom in the face of what riches or other kind of thing and God took him to be the wisest man of all time.
1 Chronicles 28: 9
9 And you, Solomon, my son, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing spirit; because Jehovah scrutinizes everyone's hearts, and understands every attempt of thoughts. If you seek him, you will find him; but if you leave him, he will reject you forever. (RVR1960)
But by virtue of it, God suggested that he recognize him as a father and that he serve him with a perfect heart and willing at all times in every place and in all circumstances since the only one who could search everyone's heart and thoughts was Him.
When the opposite happens, God rejects the actions of men because they act on their own opinion and are really foolish.
