Circumcise your heart

Moses called for an integrated life of worship, which became crusted by external observance. Mary lived true circumcision of the heart. The image suggests vulnerability, openness, cutting away whatever keeps us from intimacy with God. As new covenant people, we’re asked to live with circumcised hearts; worshipping God with reverent awe and obedience, following Jesus as Mary did, loving him, serving him with our whole heart and soul and sharing that love for the greater glory of God and the honour of his mother in everything we do. Like Mary ask for the Holy Spirit’s help today.
