God's Word for Sunday, 7/2/17

“The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful, a puzzle that no one can figure out. But I, God, search the heart and examine the mind. I get to the heart of the human. I get to the root of things. I treat them as they really are, not as they pretend to be.”

Jeremiah 17:9-10 MSG

"I get to the heart of the human."
And if we listen, He'll get us past our self-deceit.

Rev. Paul said...

"... not as they pretend to be." He's really good at that, isn't He? He doesn't mind making us uncomfortable to accomplish His purpose, because His purpose isn't to make us comfortable.

Again, thank you, Reverend.

"Hopelessly dark and deceitful". No clearer evidence of the difference between Orthodox Christianity and Humanism.

Rev. Paul said...

As always, Linda, you're most welcome. :)

TB, quite true.
