“For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.
– Matthew 15:19
Wouldn’t it be great to get rid of the wickedness of murder, adultery, immorality, stealing, lies and gossip? Some people think that if we just had better education or more fair societies, then such things would disappear. But the problem is these things are not the product of circumstance or upbringing. Evil thoughts and evil actions proceed from an evil heart. To deal with these wicked injustices we need completely transformed hearts.
Remember, the gospel makes evil men righteous and transforms societies by transforming hearts. Don’t be ashamed of the gospel, for it is the very power of God!
