Christian Faith Renewed: Awakening of the Heart

David K. Ewen

About the Book

Isn't the renewal of Christian faith truly an awakening of the heart, a journey where we find ourselves asking God to breathe new life into our spirits, creating in us clean hearts and renewing our spirits within us as Psalm 51:10 urges? How profound is it that this spiritual reawakening enables us to view the world through a new lens, where our priorities shift, and the temporary fades away, leaving us to focus on the eternal as described in 2nd Corinthians 4:18? Isn't it like waking up to a new dawn where our hearts are wide open to God's love, guiding us to live with compassion, forgive more readily, and spread kindness in our daily lives? How transformative is this journey, continuously seeking God's presence, letting Him guide our path, and experiencing the growth, discovery, and deeper sense of joy and peace that comes from this closer, more loving relationship with God and those around us?

In the journey of faith, there comes a moment that can only be described as a renewal, a profound transformation akin to awakening from a deep slumber. This is the essence of "Christian Faith Renewed: Awakening of the Heart," beautifully encapsulated in the scripture 2nd Corinthians 5:17, where it's declared that anyone in Christ is a new creation, with the old life fading away and a new life beginning. This journey is not just about rediscovering faith; it's about experiencing it in a more profound, life-altering way.

Imagine walking through life with a heart not fully aware of its need for something more, something deeper. Then, suddenly, there's a stirring, a realization that the path one has been treading is not as fulfilling as it seemed. This is the first step towards renewal-acknowledging that one's spiritual life has grown stagnant or distant from God. What follows is a heartfelt repentance, a turning away from past misdeeds and a sincere seeking of forgiveness. This act of reconciliation is not merely about saying sorry; it's about changing direction, aiming towards a life illuminated by God's presence.

As this transformation unfolds, there's an unmistakable sense of becoming a new creation. The heavy cloak of the past is lifted, replaced by a new self that thrives under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. This renewed self begins to see the world differently, valuing love, service, and obedience to God above all else. It's a rebirth that invigorates the believer's actions, thoughts, and desires, steering them towards a path that mirrors Christ's love and teachings.

Living out this renewed faith becomes an active, daily endeavor. It's no longer enough to merely claim belief; one must demonstrate it through acts of kindness, generosity, and commitment to God's word. This is the essence of awakening the heart-a realization that faith is not a passive state but a dynamic journey of continuous growth, fueled by prayer, Scripture, fellowship, and witnessing to others.

This understanding of renewal and awakening is not a linear path but a cycle of growth, challenges, and rediscovery. Each believer's journey is unique, yet all share the common goal of deepening their connection with God and living out a faith that is vibrant, transformative, and alive. In this process, the heart awakens to the boundless love and grace of God, propelling the believer towards a life that truly reflects the principles of the Christian faith.
