Wednesday Wisdom - February 3
We didn’t need a new start; we needed a new heart.
The Gospel is not simply a "mulligan" on life - another opportunity to start over and get it right. If that is all that God does for us, we are in grave trouble. For if we are honest we all know that we will quickly and hopelessly fall back into our sin. No, in the Gospel, God gives us what we actually need most ... a new heart that clings wholly to Christ and gives up on any hope of self-salvation.
