A Heart Transplant

Ezekiel 36:26

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

The law was given to Israel on tablets of stone as a covenant under which God’s people were to live. If they obeyed all that was written in this law, they would live and receive God’s blessings. If they broke even one part of it, however, they were guilty of sin and deserving of death and cursing. The sacrifice of an innocent, unblemished animal was required to atone for sin. No one could keep the entire law, and no one could enter God’s presence under this old covenant. The best it could do was to expose the fact that man could not keep God’s law. Therefore, God sent His Son in the flesh to die and become a sacrifice for the sins of His people. Anyone who accepts this sacrifice receives forgiveness of sins through grace. This new covenant of grace is greater than the former covenant of law because it has the power to transform lives. 

God promised to remove our hearts of stone (law) and put a new heart of flesh (grace) within us. When we make Jesus Lord of our lives, God changes our hearts. The Spirit in this new heart has the power to transform us with new life. It is a heart transplant that affects us forever and changes our very nature. We cannot live life abundantly without this transplant. 

Is your heart hard and cold?  If so, you are living according to the law in some area. Grace can give you a warm heart of flesh. Let go of the law and surrender to grace today. Allow God’s love to transform you with life anew. The law will only expose your weakness and leave you guilty before the Father. God’s grace will cover you with renewed strength. Wherever you are hurt, disappointed, bitter, or hardened, submit yourself for a heart transplant today. The life awaiting you is well worth it!

Have a blessed day!
