A religious person tries to remedy their sins through external deeds. They go through life knowing of God but never come into the place of true fellowship with God. Assuredly, God is concerned with one thing. Transforming the inward unseen heart. Here are four promises of God:
“I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you.”
“I will give you a new heart and spirit and will replace your heart of stone with a heart that lives.”
“I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes and keep My way.”
“You will be My people and I will be your God.”
~ Ezekiel 36:25-28
Notice the order. You are dead in sin. Nothing you do can remedy your condition. No works can save you. There is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. You cry out to Him to change you. You are given a new heart. It is fully transformed and made alive! You are given a new spirit. His Spirit indwells you. His grace empowers you to run after Him. You become His people. He becomes your God. The character of the heart is completely changed. You are given a new life! Rivers of living water will flow out from you. All of these great promises await those who will look through the glass pane window of the heart and cry out to God to change it. You can be saved today!
