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.

    Oh, Mr. Graham you just wrote something very important. The wicked ones here will not listen and hear about the Gospel. They hate God and His Son Jesus with all might. They hate Christians and small children. Yes the word hate is their food every day. How could I love them when I know that God hats evil. Jesus help me to understand thiese people.
