Today’s devotional meditation is taken from Matthew 15:19, which says,
“For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander.” (ESV).
God has shown us that wickedness is deeply embedded in the heart of the lost. Every evil and wicked way of the unredeemed, is who they really are. It is not until the soul of the individual is Divinely dealt with, that one is able to be removed from the path of eternal ruin. Therefore, to try to deal with the issue of evil within the heart without the soul being divinely impacted, is useless. That is why the unsaved can heartlessly come up with all kinds of ruthless things to do to others.
The Lord uses His children to be agents of change. We are to proclaim the Gospel for God to penetrate the hearts of the depraved. Apostle Paul said that the gospel of Jesus Christ, “…is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes…” (Romans 1:16b NKJV). Tell it everywhere you go.
