New Heart

God has done, and is doing nothing short of, a miraculous work within you. This is a transformational work in line with what He had intended from the beginning when He said in Genesis 2, “Let Us make man in our image…”. He, by the Hoy Spirit’s regeneration and subsequent activity, is accomplishing what cannot be done by any human hand.

How do you change the ‘heart’ or ‘soul’ of a person? There is no other way but by removing and replacing. That happens firstly through the new birth when the old is removed and a new is given. Ezekiel 36:26 says, "I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you”. Secondly, we receive a new dwelling place - one is taken out of darkness and put into His marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9). Thirdly, the process of ‘renewing’ of the mind starts (Romans 12:2).

With the above in mind and considering the cause-and-effect principle, one must ask what is that effect? Several things spring to mind such as new life, worship to God, changed attitudes and a host of other things. One very important 'cause and effect' often ignored or not grasped, is that the inner working of God brings about the effect of an outflow of the gospel which is the God-love message, to the world He placed you in.

It is part of the supernatural fruit of a supernatural life. Why supernatural? Because you were dead and now He made you alive by the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead (Romans 8:11).
