Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/31/11

This week’s scripture is from Ezekiel:

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”   (Ezekiel 36:26)

Perhaps our hearts are not of stone, but are there stones in your heart? Are there hard places where God’s love cannot flow?  Surrender your whole heart to the Lord. Let there be no hardness in our hearts: no unforgiveness, no anger, no prejudice, no unbelief, no unrighteousness. Let us search our hearts and lay them before God that we might be obedient, repentant, righteous children and servants open fully to God’s heart. Let the love of God for the lost and the wanderer, for the misled or backslidden, for those hard to love, soften our hearts toward them, for only by His heart are they won, only by His love.

May the Lord bless you as you open your heart to Him.
