If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9 NRSV) Wedding rings are worn on fourth finger because of an ancient belief that this finger is connected to a nerve leading directly to the heart.
Jesus knew the key to living an abundant Christian life was the heart. One of the Beatitudes--which someone has called 'the Beautiful Attitudes'--is, "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God." This simple sentence has the ability to impact in a positive way the totality of the human experience. In our spiritual journey, if our heart is sick, our whole life is affected.
Dear Jesus, fill my heart with your purity. Amen
