GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:
Heart surgery has come so far in the last few decades. Dealing with heart problems is so common today that many people go into the doctor in the morning, have their procedure, and leave and go back to work that afternoon. With that said, can you guess when the first heart transplant was performed? According to the U.S. Department of Health and Services web site, it was December 3, 1967, at the Groote Schurur Hospital in Cape Town South Africa by Dr. Christiaan Barnard. However, God had been performing heart transplants long before then.
In Psalm 73 we see such a heart transplant take place. This Psalm begins with a heart that is damaged by the poison of worldliness. In verse 3 we see by the x-ray of scripture, the heart condition of envy and lust. It says, “For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.” Further complications are evident when this heart does not realize that there is a problem. In verse 5 the patient says, “They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.” Because of this, verse 6 says this heart it now damaged with pride and violent thoughts. This heart is beyond repair and must be replaced. That is when in verse 17 God stepped in, “Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.” God performed a heart transplant that saved this man’s eternal life. His heart is now fixed by, and on God.
GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:
The condition of man’s heart is beyond repair. Psalm 14:1 “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” God, the great physician, can replace this heart.

“But as he which hath called you is holy,
so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
(meaning someone’s way of living life)
Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”
“Getting people into the Word of God…
… and the Word of God into people.”
