A COLD HEART
“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.”
Ezekiel 36:26 KJV
Two of the definitions I found for cold in Webster’s Dictionary are “indifferent; unconcerned”. Before I was saved, I had a cold heart. I didn’t care about anyone or anything. I hated everyone because I had been abused physically and emotionally. Jesus gave me a new heart filled with love and compassion.
One of my favorite hymns is “Since Jesus Passed By”. I love to hear Lynda Randle sing this beautiful hymn. When Jesus wraps His arms of compassion and love around us and tenderly whispers to us “I love you”, it makes a difference in our heart and in our life. We have a reason for living.
Heavenly Father, what a tender loving compassionate Father You are. Thank You for giving Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. Jesus, how I love You. Thank You for dying for me and for giving me a new heart. Thank You for never leaving me, not even for a minute. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
