The heart was made in purity but was darkened by sin. The result…“The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? (Jer. 17:9) The word deceitful means, “crooked, polluted or slippery.” God knows the deceit of our hearts and our propensity to sin, yet there is hope for our polluted hearts! We can’t change our hearts but we can give them to God who can cure them. God sent His Son to form and fashion a new heart inside of us…to give us a heart transplant! We still live in a world of sin and will always battle our flesh so we are to continually bring our hearts to Christ for renewal and transformation. Who has control of your heart…you or God? It really is a heart issue.
