Our Way Out

Jeremiah 17:9

The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?

Why do most of us who come to church and carry Bibles and pray still have so many problems? The Bible’s diagnosis is very straightforward, and it’s captured in one word: sin. Sin still flourishes on planet earth. We struggle not only with our actions, but with our thoughts and emotions and attitudes. The Bible says that even Jesus was tempted. Since Jesus was perfect, obedient, and sinless but still suffered with temptation, we should not be surprised when we are tempted. Jesus’ death on the cross made provision so that the consequences of sin no longer have a hold over our lives. Praise God that He has given us a remedy for the sin problem!


Heavenly Father, I come before You in humility, asking for Your forgiveness for the times my life has not brought glory to You. I pray that my life would reflect You so that others will see and wonder about Your power in my life. Thank You for the Holy Spirit who directs and convicts me. I praise You for the blood of Jesus. It is in His name that I pray, amen.
