Root of Sin

By   •   August 24   •   Topics:


The basic problem facing our world is not just social inequity, or lack of education, or even physical hunger. We are finding that highly educated and well-fed people have greeds, hates, passions, and lusts that are not eliminated by education. The root of sin in each of our hearts is extremely deep, and this is the basic cause of the world’s problems; only the fire of the Lord can burn it out. This is precisely what Christ came to do. He didn’t come to treat symptoms. He came to get at the very heart of man’s disease.

Prayer for the day

Father, root out the sin in my life—the shortcomings that are there—and fill me with Your love, so I may fight against the evil present in the world today.

    Thanks Franklin for your visit to Idaho. Many were baptized two weeks after you prayed on that special day at the Capital. God Bless.

    1Co_2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

    Each day presents its own challenges for every person on this planet. No one is immune to life’s trials and tribulations. Both saved and unsaved alike. This huge difference is the unsaved are attempting to fix things on their own and failing miserably. The saved have acknowledged that they cannot …. do anything without Christ working through them providing a path to overcome these daily challenges. Which team do you choose ?

    “The human mind may devise many plans, but it is the purpose of the LORD YHWH that will be established. A fool has no delight in understanding, but only in revealing his own opinion. LORD YHWH’s name is a strong tower: the righteous run to Him, and are safe. If you stop listening to instruction, my son, you will stray from the words of knowledge.”
