Ezekiel 11:19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:
In hospitals all over the world, doctors and hospital administrators make very hard decisions about peoples lives every single day. One of the hardest decisions for them must be when they have to decide who will, and also, who will not receive a heart that’s become available for a heart transplant. They will consider the candidates age, proximity to the available heart, the overall health of the possible recipient, along with many other variables. Sometimes the denial is based on the prior lifestyle choices of the patient. Although given prior opportunities to change personal lifestyle choices, they had refused, and now find themselves in this situation. I can’t imagine how hard it must be to tell someone they’ve been denied a possible transplant because they are not the best candidate for that heart.
In Ezekiel 11 it says that there are some who will be brought back to the land of Israel. It was based on their choices in life. Ezekiel 11:21 says; “But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Lord GOD.” Those who previously followed their own ways and wouldn’t seek after God, were denied the promise of Ezekiel 11:19. However, for those who turned to God and not away from Him, who sought God’s forgiveness, God granted them a NEW HEART.
The ultimate gift for a heart patient is a New Heart. Those unsaved are heart patients, whether they realize it or not. God has promised us a New Heart, if we will turn to Him, repent of our sin, and believe His Son Jesus paid the price for that sin.
Have you receive that Ultimate Gift?
We don’t deserve God’s mercy. We don’t deserve God’s forgiveness, We don’t deserve God’s grace. These are all a part of God’s Unmerited Love that we saw displayed this week in:
● Understand The Danger
● Unmarked Paths
● Until Then
● Unveiling The Way
● Unforgettable Words
● Ultimate Gift
Isn’t the love of Jesus something wonderful? It’s Undeserved, Unmerited Love. And oh such Undeniable Love.
Today we suggest you read and study whatever the Lord has laid on your Pastors heart. Whatever scripture he uses for today’s messages were given to him by God for your specific needs
