W01T07 – The heart is deceitful above all things

That may be true, before God (Jesus) shows up. In the Old Testament way of dealing with sins, they were dealt with externally with sacrifices, but when Jesus came and offered up His life for us, He went after our hearts. To cleanse us from the inside out.

He became the sacrificial lamb and completely destroyed sin’s power over us. Jesus took care of our sin problem, now let’s take a look in Scripture about what God plans to do with our once wicked hearts.
