1 Kings 17:1-24; Jeremiah 29:1-32; Philemon 1:1-25

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you.
Ezekiel 36:26a, NKJV

Our friends felt sorry for a duck that was sitting on infertile eggs,
so replaced them with hen eggs. The duck continued sitting and
three weeks later hatched four tiny chicks. To the consternation of
our friends, the duck was soon attempting to lead the chicks into
a nearby pond. Four tiny chicks stood at the water’s edge cheeping
loudly. What was the problem? Those chicks didn’t have the
heart of a duckling. For them to be able to swim they needed to be
born a duckling. Jesus said to Nicodemus, “You must be born again”
(John 3:7, nkjv). Have you ever come to Jesus and been born into
God’s family? If not, why not today? —Janet Fleming

Mine was a life that caused much pain,
But my heart is changed, I’ve been born again. —Janet Fleming
