Time for a Heart Transplant?
More and more these days the human body is becoming a user interface for technology.
For example, Google recently revealed a radical smart contact lens for diabetics that monitors tears and warns of dropping sugar levels.
Another tech company has engineered a prosthetic hand, with a rotating thumb, that you can control using your smart phone. Then there’s nanomedicine. It’s tiny technology that delivers drugs anywhere in the body.
We’ll refrain from addressing in this blog what the Hebrew Scriptures might have to say about human cloning.
But what used to be the things of sci-fi movies is now reality.
However, the one organ our tech and medical wizards haven’t been able to advance is the human heart. It continues to be as hard as steel.
No matter how wonderful our innovations are intellectually or scientifically, the heart is dead to the truest advancement of all – that of being spiritually alive to God.
For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander.” Matthew 15:19 ESV
And the reason is simple. The heart is God’s domain and only He can change it. Actually the whole body is God’s creation, but that’s the subject for another post.
Without a changed heart, we can’t know God.
With a changed heart brought about by God Himself, we not only know God, but are capable of loving him.
And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26 ESV
This verse was originally addressed to the nation of Israel a long time ago, but it’s still a promise we can ask God for today.
So don’t settle for just a clinical change that can only go so deep. Go after the grandest miracle God wants to give you!
Are you ready for a heart change this year?
Don’t miss out!
