New heart brings new love

US Senator Bill Frist, who is also a famous heart and lung transplant surgeon, tells the story of a twenty four year old Australian who received a heart transplant from a teenage boy killed in an accident. One of the side effects of the transplant is that he suddenly developed a craving for Burger King onion rings, whereas he’d never been interested in them before. Some months later he met the donor’s father, who told him about his son, including that his son’s favourite food had been Burger King onion rings. Well you can imagine the effect that had on the man who now had that boy’s heart beating in his own body.
It reminds me of those words of scripture that describe spiritual renewal as God putting a new heart within us so that we may be changed inwardly to love the things that he loves.
