Sermon Illustrations

How is a hard heart turned soft? Only by God performing cardiac surgery. A heart transplant. Most hearts that are medically transplanted in our hospitals today, are because the owners forgot that they were to keep healthy. They took their eyes off the good food and were distracted by the fatty and sweet. That led to arteries being clogged and a heart that becomes hard to pump blood through. And blood is life. God said that life is in the blood. And when the blood doesn’t flow through the heart, there is no life. A hard heart has no life in the spirit either. And we choose our spiritual hearts every day. WE choose our actions. Our hearts in a Biblical sense are our motivations, our inner being. And when we are distracted from our purpose of giving praise to God and living our lives as God’s people, we become stone dead.
