The Challenge to Change: Repent and Believe (Mt 4:17 & Mk 1:14-15)
When Ezekiel prophesied Israel’s restoration and return from exile, he spoke of a greater restoration to come, an inner renewal of heart and spirit that would exchange a “heart of stone” for a “heart of flesh” (Ezek 11:19). This promise of restoration and renewal focuses on core change, not just reforming behaviour and practice but transforming attitude and intent.
