Unchanging Human Nature

By   •   April 8

man with head in hands

At the cross of Christ, sin reached its climax. Its most terrible display took place at Calvary. It was never blacker or more hideous. We see the human heart laid bare and its corruption fully exposed. Some people have said that man has improved since that day, that if Christ came back today, He would not be crucified but would be given a glorious reception. Christ does come to us every day in the form of Bibles that we do not read, in the form of churches that we do not attend, in the form of human need that we pass by. I am convinced that if Christ came back today, He would be crucified more quickly than He was two thousand years ago. Sin never improves. Human nature has not changed.

Listen to this sermon from the Billy Graham archives for more on sin and human nature.

Prayer for the day

Father, take away my thoughts and deeds that crucify Jesus afresh.

    Only Christ can change the depraved nature of the human heart. However we all have a free will and must ask him first.

    Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but such as is good for building up as the need may be, that it may give grace to those who hear.

  4. w.a says:

    Ezekiel 36:26-28 I will also give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.
    I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my ordinances, and do them.
    You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be my people, and I will be your God.

    Despite the lessons of history, man remains just to sinful in many ways ( if not worse) than he was 2000 years ago. However the outcome is already written.
