Today's Word

From my Billy Graham's Page-a-Day calendar:

"And I shall give them one heart, and shall put a new spirit within them. And I shall take the heart of stone out of their flesh and give them a heart of flesh..." Ezekiel 11:19 (NASB)

"I will give them a new heart and a new mind" Ezekiel 11:19 (TEV)

When a person comes in contact with the living God, he or she can never be the same again. This divin e"fire" either draws in or drives away, saves or destroys, helps or hinders. Accepted and utilized, it becomes a boon and a blessing. Rejected, it becomes a bane and a curse. One dying theif was drawn to the warmth of the Savior; he responded in faith and was saved. The other dying theif turned away and rejected God's compassion; he was lost forever....No, you will never be the same once you know Christ. What difference will He make in your life today?
