Heart Transplant

I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.

(Jeremiah 24:7 NIV)

The Bible has a lot to say about the heart. It seems that this God-given organ plays a vital role not only in our physical, but spiritual lives as well. “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me,” David prayed (Psalm 51:10). And Jesus said, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God” (Matthew 5:8). Therefore, in today’s passage, God promises to give us just that – a pure heart. I picture God performing heart transplant surgery on us. He replaces our weak and sinful hearts with His strong and pure heart. Through time, our hearts begin to respond to His. I’d love that. Wouldn’t you?

God replaces our weak and sinful hearts with His strong and pure heart.
