"Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me." - Psalm 51 V10
"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh." - Ezekiel 36 V26
The Lord our God has prophesied for Israel that one day the nation will receive a new heart and a new spirit. The Lord will restore all things to new. With our sinful nature we all are filthy and any righteousness that one may possess even that is like filthy rags to our God. But God clothes us with His righteousness and gives us His holiness when we receive the Lord Jesus Christ and trust only in Him. He takes the heart of stone and gives a heart of flesh so that we can worship Him in Spirit and Truth. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
