A heart of flesh

We’ve been teaching in prison about the circumcision of the heart and how it involves having an open heart to God, an open heart to our neighbours, and an open heart to the will of God. It is ‘the circumcision done by Christ.’ It is a case of ‘open heart’ surgery! The heart of stone becomes a heart of flesh. He changes us from the inside out. It is not just our actions that are different but also our attitudes.

“And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” ~ Ezekiel 36:26 ~

“And the LORD your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your offspring, so that you will love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.” ~ Deuteronomy 30:6 ~
