Chances are, you have a heart problem. Our faith, like our bodies, can neither thrive nor survive without a healthy heart. While some people suffer from a physical heart condition, every one of us is born with a spiritual heart condition. Our faith is weak and we struggle with sin, bitterness and shame. Sin in our lives is the symptom of a deeper diagnosis – a deceitful heart that is desperately sick. We can’t cure it on our own, but Jesus can! He came to give us a new and healthy heart through the miracle of forgiveness. When we receive forgiveness, our heart is changed. When we forgive others, our heart remains healthy. At the heart of our problems is the problem of the heart. How is your heart today?
