Truth for Today
Ezekiel 36:26 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”
About 2300 people per year receive a heart transplant. Nationally there are 4121 people nationally who are on the transplant waiting list. Sadly we know that almost half of those who need a heart transplant will never receive it.
There a lots of people who need a new heart. Through Ezekiel God was reminding the people of Israel that for so long they had “hearts of stone”. They didn’t feel guilty about their sin. They felt no remorse for their lack of repentance. And God said, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”
Each and every one of us needs a spiritual heart transplant. I had my spiritual heart transplant two weeks before I was to be married on July 29, 1977. I gave my life to Jesus and He has been changing me from that moment to now…and He isn’t through with me yet. I hope you can share the same joy that I have about my new heart.
Lord, you are my heart Lord…protect my thoughts and my feelings…strengthen me to walk daily with you and hold me close to your love and grace…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
