A CHANGED HEART

Today’s readings are I Kings 7, II Chronicles 4, Psalm 98 and Romans 2.  We are reading from the New Living Translation.

An unchanged heart is already judged and condemned.  - if we’re honest we will realize that we need a new heart.  We are in need of God’s mercy.  The law and the conscience both tell us of this.  

God’s answer was to send his son to come and meet us in our darknned state, in love he comes into our world, into the far country in pursuit of you, for us, for all humanity.  He comes on our behalf, that he might taste death for all, but in his dying he defeats death and darkness and drags us with him, out the other side into his resurrection life.    When we are drawn into God’s life, we are born again, given a new heart, that can trust and walk in relationship with God, and be truly changed.  This is the evidence that we are the true children of God.  That relationship with God is based, no on my piety, or my pedigree, or race, but on God’s grace, revealed to us in the person and work of Christ himself.  God has given us the answer to our need for a new heart, and it’s Christ his son.    Live in the power of Christ in you.  Abide in Him, his Word, his joy and his life.
