New Heart

And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you.

--Ezekiel 36:26

You and I need a miracle… the miracle of transformation that comes from accepting Jesus Christ.

Maybe you’ve experienced that miracle by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. If so, you know just how amazing the transformation is.

First it is a changing experience. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come” (2 Corinthians 5:17). When you repent, God gives you a new heart and changes you inside and out.

It is also a cleansing experience. “I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleanness, and from all your idols I will cleanse you” (Ezekiel 36:25). Every sin, stain, and blemish from your past, present, and future is forgiven because Jesus bore your sin and guilt when He died upon the cross.

And finally, it is a continual experience. “I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in my statues” (Ezekiel 36:27). Jesus promised that when His Spirit lives inside of you, you have a dramatic, dynamic connection with God.

If you’ve experienced the miracle of salvation, I encourage you to share your story with someone who needs to hear it this week.



I acknowledge that right now Lord I dont have the power and strength to overcome my struggles on my own. I am filled with worries and things to be done internally and externally and I need your power to pour upon me so that I may be able to overcome and claim my victory in Your name. I am crying within and wounded from battle. Lord please pull me out and redeem me again to become a great warrior again. I love you!
