Sin is a Heart Problem

What emerges from within a man, that and nothing else is what makes him impure. - Mathew 7:20
Jesus tells us in Mathews gospel that wicked designs come from deep recesses of the heart. Paul David Tripp in “New Morning Mercies” furthers this with the fact the we will never understand our struggle with sin until we acknowledge that it is a matter of the heart. Our heart is the spiritual and emotional center of our bodies. Sin lives in our hearts and corrupts our thoughts, desires, choices and motivations.
We were designed to live for God’s glory, but sin redirects our heart to our own glory. We cannot run from sin because we cannot run from ourselves. What we need is a radical transformation of the heart. We need to run to the grace of Jesus. Run for humility, run for love and run for forgiveness.
Run into the arms of Jesus.
