The only acceptable sacrifices to God are a broken and a contrite heart. To be broken means to be transformed to the likeness of Christ with genuine repentance. It means not doing those things which have become one’s more or less a habit before you have encountered Christ. A broken heart will not have a place to harbor pride, self-over estimation, resentments or un-forgiveness, Rather it will exhibit meekness, gentleness and love for what is good and godly.
Submission to higher authority and a total dependence on the Holy Spirit, is another marked characteristics of a broken heart. BROKENNESS and HOLINESS go together, for there is no way you will be broken and not live a holy life or being holy that you will not be broken.
To serve God profitably and to daily experience the in filling of the Holy Spirit you need to be broken.
