Of all the stories in the Bible, from the parting of the Red Sea to the raising of Lazaras from the dead, the conversion of Paul may be the most miraculous. With Paul, God changed a human heart. Through the prophet Ezekiel, God promised He would take away the heart of stone from the hardened Israelites and replace it with a heart of flesh, a heart malleable, tender and God-fearing. With all that's happening in the world today, the hate and violence----People seem so hard-hearted. But we serve a God who can change a heart. We can't legislate morality or love, But God can turn hearts of stone into loving hearts of flesh, and like Ananias to Paul, we can be ready to help them when He does! Lord, work in the hearts of people. Turn our hearts of stone into hearts of flesh. And, Lord, if there is any hard-heartedness in my heart, replace it with a heart of flesh and show us how to help others walk in your light. AMEN!
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
