It is weird getting to know God. We are made in His image. But we are also broken by our inherited and chosen sin. Our limitations are many. So are our opportunities.
When God comes into our lives we return ownership over our own soul to our Creator. Our old heart is lost. Our new heart is – new. Both hearts are supernatural, one will live forever.
“Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” – Ezekiel 36:26
“I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good. For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man, but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin.” – Romans 7:21-25
God takes the spiritually dead and brings us to life. This is the very essence of being “born again.” It is supernatural. It is real. And it occurs in the core of the heart.
