Proverbs 23:26 – GOOD ADVICE

My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.


The word conversion implies change.

In order for God to call you his son or his daughter, a change had to take place.

Naturally speaking we are all sinners. We have all failed God. Romans 3:10-12, Isaiah 64:6

And to make matters worse, God, who is just has pronounced in Ezekiel 18:4.

There was once a man, a very religious man, and he very well could have been the leading religious teacher in Jesus. This man once came to Jesus by night for advice. His name was Nicodemus. John 3:1-3

Jesus told Nicodemus, that unless he was born again, he could not see the Kingdom of God.

So, how does one go about being born again? John 1:12-13

According to John 1:12 Jesus must be received.

Also in John 1:12, we are told that to receive Jesus is to believe on Him.

When you decide to believe on Christ from you heart as your Savior, a wonderful change will take place because you will be born of the Spirit of God. John 3:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12:13

It is through the witness of the Holy Spirit in our lives that we are able to truly call God our Heavenly Father. Romans 8:15-16

CONSECRATION – give me thine heart

When God says to His children, give me your heart, He is looking for a commitment. He is looking for our consecration to Him alone. He is looking for our exclusive love. Matthew 22:37, 1 John 4:19, Romans 12:1

CONDUCT – and let thine eyes observe my ways.

Our conduct should always be pleasing to God.

If our eyes observe the ways of God, it means that we will obey the Word of God.

How important is obedience?

King Saul was disqualified from being king because he failed to obey God.

Saul was told in 1 Samuel 15:22-23

How important is obedience?

When others rebelled against God’s plan, Caleb was ready to go into The Promised Land.

The best way I know to be obedient is to learn God’s Word and to do what it says.

Joshua 1:8, Psalm 119:11
