Everything that people do is sourced from the heart, which is so horribly sinful that it is ‘incurably sick’ (Jeremiah 17:9). The first murder in the Bible was seen in the heart by God even before it was committed and the massive Flood of judgement came because man’s HEART was so sick (Gen. 6:5-6). We need to protect these hearts of ours so that sin will not come in, or out (Proverbs 4:23). The heart is also scarred by others’ sinfulness, and yet our hearts – even the most scarred ones – can be transformed into something that powerfully blesses others. Here is my sermon on these matters today from various parts of Scripture.
It’s also my 37th birthday today 🙂 It’s an honour to preach on my own birthday!
