They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 1:29 NIV
Who are they? Not us for sure! But Scriptures describe a people who have lost their bearings. They are filled with all kinds of evil and deviation. They don´t know how to relate themselves anymore to God. They need a Savior. It is for wayward hearts that God´s Son had to be sacrificed. God´s own heart had to be pierced and His own Child slaughtered before His eyes because we constantly turn our backs on Him. We let our attention wander. We allow separation between us and our Lord. Evil sneaks in and fills us every moment we remove our eyes from God. Or do we think we are better than that?
If we choose to believe that the incrimination falls on someone else and that the word of God was written to turn others, it loses its healing power for us. If we think we are already perfect and do not need to repent from our ways today, than we have been deceived. Evil has won a victory by hiding our guilt and preventing us from seeking to repair what we should have with our Lord. Christ is held from us as we choose not to press on into His Presence. Shall we pray that our eyes are opened and so we can see where evil is secretly filling us and keeping us from coming more fully to Christ?
Please help us and seek You more intently each day! Do not let our hearts be distracted by our world or filled with anything less than the Spirit of God today we pray!
