It always bothers me when I hear someone say, “That’s just how I am.” That is one of the biggest lies that people believe about themselves. When you become a Christian, you become a new creation. A new person! The old you is gone. That means that you are able to change, and that it starts in your heart. Because God cleanses our heart and Jesus moves in, we are no longer bound to the lie of who we were. We can now become who we were created to be as long as we allow God to make those changes in our life. He wants to change your heart, transform your thinking and elevate your life so that you can help others to find Him and have changed hearts too. Don’t cling to who you were. Take hold of who you’re becoming.
Here are some Bible verses on having a changed heart.
Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you, and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:26 AMP
2. Your hearts and minds must be made completely new, and you must put on the new self, which is created in God’s likeness and reveals itself in the true life that is upright and holy.
Ephesians 4:23-24 GNT
3. God, your God, will cut away the thick calluses on your heart and your children’s hearts, freeing you to love God, your God, with your whole heart and soul and live, really live.
Deuteronomy 30:6-7 MSG
4. Create a pure heart in me, O God, and put a new and loyal spirit in me.
Psalm 51:10 GNT
5. I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.
Ezekiel 11:19-20 NLT
