Have you received your new heart?

eze 26.
Ezekiel 36:26–27 ESV
And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.
Why do we need a new heart/when did we lose it?
Why do we need a new spirit/when did we lose it?
2 Corinthians 13:5 ESV
Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!
Genesis 2:7 ESV
then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.
We should always pay attention to the law of beginning.
Unless we intervene, things will finish as they started.
In the beginning we had the Ruah of Yahweh.
Genesis 3:9 ESV
But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”
It was here in our disobedience to Yahweh that we lost the Ruah.
Free will to choose to disobey the Word of God (Yahweh).
John 3:3 ESV
Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
And it is here where we get the Ruah back.
Free will to choose to receive the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 13:5 ESV
Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!
Now the question is do we really have the Spirit?
What test is this text saying.
Galatians 5:16–25 ESV
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.
This is where we get to examine.
gal 5.16-
How are we walking?
What are we saying?
Can people see us walking in the Spirit? Do they see Christ?
Galatians 6:7 ESV
Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.
We cannot deceive God.
So lets not deceive ourselves.
Colossians 3:2 ESV
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
I encourage you all, myself included to set your mind, will on things above.
In doing this, we cannot walk in the flesh.
1 Corinthians 9:27 ESV
But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
1 cor 9.27
And our walk will show who we belong to.
Genesis 2:7 ESV
then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.
Christ will be glorified in our lives.
No matter where we currently find ourselves.
