Change of Heart

man praying

Paul before his conversion was not meek. Proudly and brutally, he apprehended all Christians and sought to destroy them. He was bigoted, selfish, and vaunted. But when he wrote his warm and affectionate letter to the churches of Galatia, he said, among other things, “The fruit of the Spirit is . . . gentleness, goodness . . . meekness.” His meekness was something God-given, not something man-made. It is not our nature to be meek. On the contrary, it is our nature to be proud and haughty. That is why the new birth is so essential to each of us. That is why Jesus frankly and pointedly said not only to Nicodemus but to every one of us, “Ye must be born again.” Meekness begins there! You must have a change of nature.

Prayer for the day

Heavenly Father, give me the same kind of meekness that You gave to Jesus.

    Listening to Billy Grahams sermons on television is magnificent. I hear he is ill and I pray our Lord
    Jesus hold him in the palm of his hand during this time. Billy Graham has brought me closer to our
    Lord Jesus. God Bless Him.

    If the apostle Paul could do a 180° turn and serve the Lord in such a mighty way ….there is hope for all. If you do not know Christ,please, do not wait another moment. Simply ask him into your life you will be amazed and wished you had asked him sooner.

    Dear God, Please enable me to put off all things that are not of You. Change me into what You want me to be. Thank you for loving and caring about me. Please forgive me for all of the ways that I am not what you want me to be.
