Jeremiah 17:10 (NKJV) I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.
God searches the hearts of men, and gives to everyone according to his own deeds. Mind you, the hearts of men are wicked. There is none good no not one. All have fallen short from the glory of God. Those who are without Christ will be punished for their own sins. Yes, the penalty for sin must be paid. And no amount of good works or wealth can pay for our sins. It is only by the shed blood of Jesus Christ that we are saved. There is no other way to the Father. God has reconciled a world of lost sinners onto Himself. But in order to be saved, you must accept Jesus Christ, God the Son, as your Lord and Savior. “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” (John 3:16 NKJV). When we come to the Lord Jesus Christ, He gives us new life, we are born again and we are given a new nature in Christ. We have a new heart, one that is filled with the love of Christ. One that is filled with the Holy Spirit of God. One in which the Word of God is at home. My friends, God does not want our old wicked heart. God wants to give us a new heart.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
