If you’ve trusted God, then you have a new heart. The gospel difference has already been made in you and you’re ready to become a difference maker in the world. But if you haven’t yet trusted God, you’re still in your sin. You’re still under his holy judgment. You’re still his enemy.
The good news is that you don’t have to stay that way. Jesus has made a way for you to become a son or a daughter of God. John 1:12 says, “But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in his name.” Do you believe in Jesus? Do you believe that his death and resurrection were for you? To forgive your sins? To make you right with God? Receive this good news. Accept it. Let Jesus make a difference in your life. If you rest in his finished work, you’ll be given a healthy heart, and you’ll be ready to become a difference maker.
