A Heart Condition

“And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you.  I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.”  Ezekiel 36:26 

I was born with a heart condition.

You were, too.

So was everyone who was ever born after Adam and Eve—except Jesus.

This condition is a hardening of the heart, or sin.  It is a fatal condition (Romans 6:23).

In spite of our heart condition, Jesus has given us the opportunity for a heart transplant.

The donor is perfect (Hebrews 4:15).

The surgery is free.

Curious about the surgeon?  His reputation is impeccable.  He is the physician (Mark 2:17).

Our wonderful Savior makes all things new—even cold, stony, callous, corrupt, and sinful hearts.  He miraculously changes them and makes them soft, tender, loving, and sensitive—just like the heart of a child.

May you live today and every day making highest and best use of the new heart He has given you.
