It’s God who changes our hearts. We may deceive ourselves thinking it’s just another resolution we make to work on ourselves. We try harder, “I’ll do better this time.’ We think we just need to ‘wait on the Lord’. Or, we mistakenly believe just gathering more information will help. But Jesus promises when we actively place ourselves on his operating table, he does heart surgery & we come away with true change. We don’t just act loving, we become loving!
