A New Heart 3rd in a February series on matters of the heart

Daddy had heart disease. Tha’ doctor had ta’ do a 5 by-pass open heart surgery. He got along just fine. My sister Ditsy Lou ‘n I gave him an Elmo balloon. It had accordian’ legs. Daddy loved it ‘cause it reminded him of tha’ time we had an imaginary friend named, Elmo. But that's another story. Anyway…

it was a long time ‘fore Daddy came home from tha’ hospital. He had a allergic reaction ta' some of tha' medications. After healin’, he was back at work ‘n livin’ a normal life again. His heart was stronger 'n healthier. It was like he got a new heart.

Tha’ same is true when ya’ accept Jesus as your Savior. Ya’ get a new heart! Your heart is changed! Ya’ don’t want ta’ do all tha’ things ya’ used ta’ do! Ya’ don’t even have some of tha’ friends ya’ used ta’ have. Ya' become new with Christ!

Ezekiel 18:31 Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit.

Things at’ think ‘bout:

1. What do ya’ think makes up a new heart?

2. Do ya’ need a new heart?

  1. I think God works in our heart making small changes every day.

  2. Every once in a while, we all need a heart tune up.

  3. Janet, thanks for sharing your post. I like the way you tied in your Dad's heart surgery with us getting a new heart when we accept Jesus. May God bless you, Deborah H. Bateman
