When we see this symbol, I think we instinctively know this is a symbol that 'raises awareness' of breast cancer. I read a part of one of their campaigns that read, "While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.”
This got me thinking about another symbol that 'raises awareness' ...awareness of a heart condition.
With easter almost upon us, I would like to start a campaign that reads, "While most people are aware of their own heart, I would like to encourage you with the cure of the diseased & hurting heart.”
The heart is fooled more than anything else, and is very sinful. Who can know how bad it is? Jeremiah 17:9
Good news, bad news...which do want first? The bad news is, your heart is deceitfully wicked. You are not alone - we are all born into sin so it's a universal problem for everyone.
The good news is Jesus paid the price on the cross, died and was resurrected, so we could choose to repent (turn from our own ways of doing things) and be forgiven of our sins. We can be brought back into relationship with God! That is some GOOD NEWS!
How about you? Has the cross raised awareness in your own heart?
He loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when He raised Christ from the dead. Ephesians 2:4-5
