“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. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.” Ezekiel 36:26-27.

When I leave the house, I always ensure these three items are on me: wallet, phone, keys. Every time I move around, I tap myself three times to make sure that these three items are on me.

One morning, I came to church to pray and to read. While I was reading, I needed to get something from the backpack. Then I realized something else was missing. My instinct said that this item was back at home. I drove to church, so that means I had my keys on me. I can see the phone on the desk. So it was my wallet that I left at home.

I was super conscious on my way back home because I didn’t have my driver’s license on me. Since it was early morning, hardly any cars were on the road. But I didn’t speed, I drove safely on the road, and I made sure double, and triple times not to break the law. I didn’t want to get pulled over for any reason. Even though I can claim that I was faithful to the traffic law, I felt guilty. Because I didn’t have my driver’s license with me. I was just more conscious of that fact.

Romans 3:23 tells us that we are all sinners. Therefore, no matter how much I try to obey the law, we are still sinners. The only way to be saved as you know is only through Jesus Christ. When we do so, God will give us a new heart and a new spirit. We’ll feel secure and safe only when we have Jesus Christ within our hearts. If Jesus is not present in our hearts, no matter what we do, we will be insecure.
