Recently I attended a lecture by Wendy Wright who spoke on qualities of the heart. Wendy said the Christian life is a transformation of heart. We exchange our heart for the heart of Jesus. We must beat in the rhythm of God, aiming to be like Jesus whose heart beat in perfect rhythm with the Father.

Afterwards I reflected upon Christ’s willingness to exchange hearts with us. Wouldn’t that be the kenosis, the self-emptying of Jesus’ suffering and death, who though God did not cling to God but emptied himself and gave everything?

What would I do differently today if I had the heart of Jesus Christ in me?
