The world is a broken place. 2020 brought that home to many of us through our experiences with the pandemic, quarantine, political fights, etc. But before there was ever a pandemic or sharp differences of political opinions, we all had experience with brokenness.
In other words, before these outside issues struck with such force in 2020, all we had to do was look in the mirror. We have millennia of years worth of evidence to say that human beings are broken. We’ve never been able to pull ourselves together. We know the right things to do, but we don’t do them, and we never will apart from outside help.
Deuteronomy 30:1-10 teaches us that the reason the world is a mess, the reason we are broken is because our hearts are broken. We need new hearts! But how can they be fixed? How do you know if you have a new heart? And if you don’t, how do you get one? The answers are here in this text.
Scripture: Deuteronomy 30:1-10; Romans 7:22; Isaiah 53:5,8; Colossians 2:11-15
