Ezekiel 36:26 And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. And I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.
Welcome to our worship celebration today! We are really happy that you made it. The Lord will touch your life like no one can. You will be blessed because you gave time to the Lord. Open your heart to him. Let God be God in your life, and you will be thrilled with the new things he will do in your life beginning today.
God is changing lives. He will heal wounds in your emotions or mind. He will restore malfunctioning parts of your body. He will fix your broken relationships. He will replace what was taken from you. He will make you new. You can have a new beginning with him.
Today, we want to talk about a changed heart. The heart is the seat of our lives. When our hearts are changed, our lives will also be changed. Today we will also receive and experience the power and blessings of forgiveness. We will take our sins and wrongs to God, and receive his forgiveness. With God’s help, we will forgive those who have wronged us so that we are set free from the trap and poison of bitterness that is destroying our lives. And we will also forgive ourselves so that our self-image and confidence are restored. When we do these, we glorify God and bring good to ourselves and others.
How is your heart today? Is it tender toward God? Is it soft towards people? Give your heart to the Lord. Allow him to shape (or re-shape) it. Let him train it to pursue godly and good things. And let him assure it of his love that is constantly available for you.
Today is a day of freedom and healing for you! Today is the day for a changed heart. Receive God’s bountiful blessings for your needs and even some of your desires!
