An oft quoted verse from the pen of the weeping prophet Jeremiah states “The heart is more deceitful than all else and desperately sick. Who can understand it?” (Jer. 19:9)
This statement of man’s depravity is constantly being demonstrated for anyone who pays attention to the news! G.K. Chesterton once wrote that the doctrine of original sin is the easiest of all the doctrines of Scripture to prove. So, what is one to do with this question “Who can know it?”
The answer is simple: KEEP READING!
“I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds.” (Jer. 17:10)
And yet we also read “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.“ (Rom. 5:8)
AMAZING GRACE, INDEED!
