“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
There are people who, after a traumatic break-up with their boyfriend or girlfriend, will insist “My heart is broken.”
But the truth is: all human hearts are broken.
Modern man likes to talk about his heart: how much love he’s got in his heart; in your heart you know he’s right; I love you deep down in my heart, etc. But the Bible says the human heart is wicked, evil and the source of depravity. There’s nothing good about the human heart. Which is why all men need a savior.
According to the Bible, the human heart is wicked, evil and the source of bad things.
That’s EVERY human heart.
“But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man:”
Every human being is evil. It begins in the human heart, which is wicked.
That’s EVERY human being.
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”
“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;”
“They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
All men are lost. All men need a Savior.
All men need Jesus Christ.
All men’s hearts are wicked.
Don’t rely on your heart to steer you the right direction.
Rely on the gospel of Jesus Christ.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how thatChrist died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-4
The gospel is the power of salvation for mankind.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
