Right Heart

It is hard to find people to align with to work together for a common purpose. It is important that people have the same vision or it will be difficult to make any progress. The right heart is also important, because working together for some goal or project is done well when people respect each other.

In 2 Kings 10, we read about Jehu and Jehonadad. Ahab’s family was just killed. Jehu left in his chariot and met Jehonadad who was coming to meet him. Jehu “greeted him” or “saluted him.” The word used is “barak,” which means “blessed” or “kneel down.” He showed respect and affection. Jehu then asks Jehonadab if his heart is right, because if he was going to join him with his mission, he would need to have his heart right with him. We see that Jehonadab says his heart is right and Jehu asks for his hand and allows him to join his chariot. No longer is it Jehu alone with this mission forward. He now is joined in this endeavor.

It is important to work together with each other. It is also important that, if we work together, we share in a common goal with a right heart. When it comes to ministry, a right heart is a heart devoted to Jesus. When we come together devoted for Jesus Christ, we find that, just as His Word says, we can do greater things (John 14:12).

“Now when he had departed from there, he met Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming to meet him; and he greeted him and said to him, ‘Is your heart right, as my heart is with your heart?’ And Jehonadab answered, ‘It is.’ Jehu said, ‘If it is, give me your hand.’ And he gave him his hand, and he took him up to him into the chariot.” – 2 Kings 10:15 [NASB]
