New Heart

Re: Verse reading–1 Peter 1:1-12 (day two)
I was reading this morning the words of the Prophet Jeremiah who spoke of hearts that are beyond cure. (Jer. 17:9) A very grim assessment, but so very true.  Where then is our hope if we are beyond cure?  “In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection.” (1 Pet. 3)  This isn’t about fixing what is broken, it is about newness of life.  We are granted a new heart that longs to know Christ more.  This doesn’t absolve us from suffering or the refining of our sin nature, but with a new Spirit guiding us, we now have the Hope we could never have with our diseased former hearts.  Press On.
