Wrestling with Truth — July 1, 2012

(the message of Jeremiah and Ezekiel)

We addressed the topic of how people can be changed and how people’s hearts need to be transformed.


(Jer 17:1 NIV)  Judah’s sin is engraved with an iron tool, inscribed with a flint point, on the tablets of their hearts . . .

(Jer 17:9 NIV)  The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?


(Jer 31:33 NIV)  “This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

(Ezek 36:26 NIV)  I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

(Psa 51:7 NIV)  Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

(Psa 51:10 NIV)  Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

A great song to remember:

Give me a love that knows no ill
Give me the grace to do thy will
Pardon and cleanse this soul of mine
Give me a heart like Thine

Come to my soul blessed Jesus
Hear me Oh Saviour Divine
Open the fountain and cleanse me
Give me a heart like Thine
–Judson W. van Deventer
