"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?" - Jeremiah 17 V9

"So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God." - Romans 8 V8

The human heart is desperately wicked and out of it emerges the root of all problems. With our sinful nature it is impossible to please God. But by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ we can please God and the Lord provides His Holy Spirit to those who believe on Him and receive Him as Lord and Saviour. The Holy Spirit prepares the believer and helps them to walk with the Lord. Sure, believers in Christ still possess the same sinful nature but they are a new creation and all things are new. The Holy Spirit of God convicts sin and causes the believer to repent of his sin. The Holy Spirit helps believers to become Christ like each day when we live in fellowship with God. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
