Many health conscious people have regular medical checkups. Sometimes this involves an electrocardiogram, whereby a picture is taken of the movements of the heart. Health professionals are then able to detect any abnormalities and be alerted to possible danger signals. Did you know that God also performs electrocardiograms on our hearts? I am not referring to the physical heart, but to the centre of our emotions, wills and affections. God says, “I search the heart.” Then later He gives us the results, telling us that the heart of man natural is too diseased be fixed. There can be no spiritual by-pass, or stent. But thankfully, God promises, “I will give you a new heart, and put a new spirit within you.” In other words, we need to be spiritually re-born. Jesus explained, “Except a man be born again, He cannot see the kingdom of God.” This new heart comes when we acknowledge our spiritual need and invited Christ into our lives to perform a spiritual heart transplant. That by the way, is what it means to be born again.
