THEME TEXT: Ezekiel 11: 19-20
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. They will be my people and I will be their God.
Sometimes we try to get rid of the sin by focusing our attention on something else like reading our Bible or doing good works instead of dealing with the temptation. The problems is, we try to change ourselves on the outside when the sin problem is on the inside where only Jesus can reach and change us.
A musical mime. A Christian discovers a “sin spot” on his heart and desperately tries to clean it off by using different “good works.” When all his attempts fail, Jesus comes on the scene. But instead of helping the Christian with his “good works” Jesus tries to take off the Christian’s outer shell and get to his heart. Only then does the Christian find a real love and relationship with Jesus who cleans the sin spot by taking the Christian’s heart and giving him His own.
