Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Ezekiel 36:26


36:26 A new heart - A new frame of soul, a mind changed, from sinful to holy, from carnal to spiritual. A heart in which the law of God is written, #Jer 31:33|. A sanctified heart, in which the almighty grace of God is victorious, and turns it from all sin to God. A new spirit - A new, holy frame in the spirit of man; which is given to him, not wrought by his own power. The stony - The senseless unfeeling. Out of your flesh - Out of you. Of flesh - That is, quite of another temper, hearkening to God's law, trembling at his threats, moulded into a compliance with his whole will; to forbear, do, be, or suffer what God will, receiving the impress of God, as soft wax receives the impress of the seal.


Discussion for Ezekiel 36:26

  • What I discover about the text is this: The old heart have no desire to please God because 1 its the heart when we were sinful as well as in the world. And 2 that heart is not in agreement with what should be taking place as WE totally surrender to God. I do understand also that the word of God can't penetrate A heart that really doesn't desire the change. So I just believe that once we really Surrender unto the Lord and desire to really live for him, I just believe that only then can we receive the heart that will allow us to change and to live the live that was purpose for us all to live... I desire to experience the Love of Christ and to experience the true peace of God. The NEW HEART will also free US in him.... I am really allowing this verse to sink into my spirit so that I can understand why this transformation must take place. be bless family....
  • Whitney Mazarin for verse 26
    This is exactly how I feel, been feeling latley. I understand and see things for what they are. Negative things that didn 't bother me before now I find unjust. I feel happy, renewed kind of like how I use to be the old me but not quite. I have sinned so much last year at 23. I have distant myself from my friends because I know they aren 't on the same path I have just found. Im overwhelmed but grateful now that I can see. I look different even inpictures I have this glow or beauty but it 's shinning from inside.
  • Very inspiring passage to me in my Christian walk. I appreciate the mercies of Christ that have transformed me from being a sinner to being forgiven. May he continue to grant me the will and ability to live a Christ like life.
  • For someone that has faith they have been saved this scripture if full of truth. I thank the LORD for changing me, healing my broken heart, and setting my path straight in his ways. I pray that those who read this remember when Jesus touched their life and and became their Lord and Savior, and their heart flutters in the Spirit. Amen
