Light Always Banishes Darkness
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? (Jeremiah 17:9 KJV)
The heart of all mankind is desperately wicked from birth. It is a naturally dark and unreliable indicator of the current situation in his life. His heart is easily led astray by contrary whims and waves often found at work in this world. Reliance upon feelings generated in his heart will often lead man in the wrong direction.
The spiritually quickened heart is on a godly course and is sealed and found to be spiritually sound and secure. It is grounded on an eternal relationship with God rather than relying upon the changing tide at work in this dreadful world. A relationship with God always provides a secure anchor to keep man afloat in a world flooded with darkness.
God intimately knows who is spiritually fit from those who harbor a desperately ill heart condition because He knows the eternal state of each man’s heart. He understands just how wicked and deceitful the natural man is. Yet, God loves him, even with the presence of darkness deserving of His wrath and death rather than His love and light forever.
God desires all mankind become spiritually robust through faith in the work of His Son on the cross at Calvary.
