Details

The anticipated telephone call came late one fall evening— a new heart for Gary. Even the boosted “rocket fuel” that his heart pumping had begun to fail to do its job. Gary had been on the transplant list for a few weeks when the call came that he and his family were about to receive the incredible gift of many more years of life.

The Bible tells us that we are all in a situation more desperate than Gary’s, for more than this life is at stake. Our sinful hearts have earned eternal death because “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23), and we “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). When we understand the original Greek in the latter verse, we realize how desperate our situation is. The Greek words translated “fall short” indicate a continuing action—we continue to fall short. Sin is not only about past actions but also about our continuing state of existence.

The heart replacement for Gary came with the knowledge that someone else had lost his life when the heart became available. We have an opportunity to have our sinful hearts transplanted, but this transfer also comes at the cost of a life. “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). Notice, Christ died for us not “when we were worthy,” or “when we obeyed God’s law perfectly,” or even “when we became aware of our need,” but “while we were still sinners.”

We have been offered the greatest, most valuable gift in all eternity. We need not get on a list, we need not wait. We can have it here and now, simply for the asking. Simply recognize your need, confess that you need this new heart, and ask God to give it to you. There is no magic formula, no set words. Just ask. Gary not only had a new heart, but he also had a new life. Still, his life had changed, and he needed to learn how to live that new life. When we receive our new hearts, we also need to learn how to live our lives anew. Enjoy the gift!
