No matter how hard we strive to lead a Christ-like, God pleasing life, we will still fall short of Christ-likeness.
Unless God gives us a new heart and a new Spirit we cannot walk with Him or fully obey His Word. We can never bring comfort and pleasure to Him in our old nature.
Therefore, this is what God wants to do NOW in His people and for His people everywhere.
“I will also sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. I will cleanse you from all your impurities ......... I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place My Spirit within you and cause you to follow My statutes and carefully observe My ordinances.” (Eze. 36:25-27)
Ask God to do this great work in your life for His glory.
Pursue Jesus who is IN you, and cling to Him in your inward life, for there you will find Him, in His sanctuary.
God bless you!
