This winter season can be a vivid image of the heart that has turned cold towards God. In the winter there is no growth in the garden. Rather bushes that once were decorated in beautiful leaves stand completely naked. The temperature is so cold that if you do not have proper shelter and clothing you could surely die. Hypothermia, phenomena, and frostbite go hand and hand with this season.
A life of a person who has hardened their heart towards God looks quite the same. A person who has the potential to bear so much good fruit in their life chooses not to. Instead they become spiritually sick or spiritually dead. They are void of the fire of God that can ignite their lives.
Typically. when your heart is cold towards God, the sin of the world does not bring you any discomfort. Rather you enjoy partaking in it. Believe it or not, this windchill can even come across believers from time to time. Why is that? I don't know...perhaps we like leaving the comfort of a warm room with a fireplace to stand barefoot in the snow; just to have to pound on the door and ask God to let us back in His comfortable home. When will we learn?
Hearts turn cold to God for many reasons to name a few
Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. Matthew 24:12
