For awhile I was a getting daily devotional from Ransomed Heart Ministries (John Eldredge, et al).
Something today jarred a quote I vaguely remembered. Thanks to Mr. Google, I resurfaced it.
“You’ve been far more than forgiven. God has removed your heart of stone. You’ve been delivered of what held you back from what you were meant to be. You’ve been rescued from the part of you that sabotages even your best intentions. Your heart has been circumcised to God. Your heart has been set free.
And there is even more.“
Read more of the context from chapter 4 & 5 of Waking the Dead.
This is the abundant life Christ died to give us.
