A new Heart and Spirit


Church Family,

Ezekiel 11:19-20 And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, 20that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

This is one of the great promises of the Bible. When we believe in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, He gives us more than just forgiveness. God gives us a new heart and a new Spirit. A Spirit that gives us Unity in Christ and a Heart that removes the false idols of our lives. The heart of stone is a reminder of how sin hardens our heart. Pride is one of the characteristics of someone living in sin. They’ve hardened their heart to the voice of God, ways of God and people of God. It is impossible for them to be saved by human reason, logic, or effort, but Praise be to God that His word is a hammer. It is able to break the hardness of the heart and save the lost. Even someone as hard and lost as I was.

Believers, can I encourage you to trust in the power of God’s word as you share your faith and not your abilities? If you don’t believe in Jesus and are reading this, can I encourage you to read the bible, maybe the gospel of John and sincerely ask yourself, “who is Jesus?”

Reminders:

  1. Brotherhood Tuesday at 6:30. Looking forward to having all the men and their boys with them. Dad’s let me encourage to bring your sons with you. It is never too early to start showing them Jesus in the lives of other men.
  2. Thank you for a wonderful time of worship yesterday. I loved hearing all the singing and praise reports during the evening service.
  3. Mission Trip Fundraiser March 1st. We need prayer, cooks, servers, delivers, cleaners, and are accepting donations to help pay for the supplies/materials/food used during this.
  4. Are you praying for opportunities to share your faith? Praying for those you listed yesterday as needing salvation?

Love, Serve, Go
