A new heart. One spiritual, another one physical. A good Jewish friend of mine also happens to be an excellent FAA certified aircraft powerplants mechanic. He’s just now completing a lengthy engine overhaul on our aircraft. In a sense, “heart surgery” of a sort on the most vital part of our aircraft. Coincidentally, he will be having heart surgery later this month, and will hopefully be stronger and healthier for it. Providentially, he had a “spiritual heart surgery” recently and now thinks of himself as a Messianic Jew. A Jewish Christian. God via the Holy Spirit worked through me and a former Navy Captain (also a friend) to introduce Biblical truths to my aircraft mechanic friend by inviting him to church, and engaging him in discussions and prayers. When my wife and I were blessed to visit the Holy Lands in Israel a few years back, I texted my Jewish friend a picture of a prayer I had written for him which I had inserted in the Western Wall near the temple in Jerusalem. He said that it touched him deeply. Now he is “a new creation”. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Spiritual heart surgery, and a new heart for God. Please be in prayer now for his physical heart’s renewal.
One thought on “Heart transplant”
We will be in prayer for your friend undergoing heart surgery. What a blessing he was accepted Christ as his Savior. This story shows how God uses us as vessels to do good for the glory of God.
