Psalm 14:2-3 (NKJV) 2 The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God. 3 They have all turned aside, They have together become corrupt; There is none who does good, No, not one.

 

When God looks down from heaven to see if anyone seeks Him. God finds that no one does good. “They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one” (Romans 3:12 NKJV). Both the psalmist and the Apostle Paul is speaking of everyone. This is a picture of all of mankind, we all are sinners. The condition of man’s heart is corrupt. Man is naturally a sinner. This is why if not for the Holy Spirit of God drawing man to God, no one would seek after God. It is only through the Holy Spirit of God that we become aware of our need for God and His free gift of salvation. The original sin of disobedience has been passed down from Adam to the entire human race. For this reason, God sent His Son into this world. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:16-17 NKJV). And this is the reason for the season.

 

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
