We are evil because…
“The Lord saw that humanity had become thoroughly evil on the earth and that every idea their minds thought up was always completely evil. The Lord regretted making human beings on the earth, and he was heartbroken. So the Lord said, “I will wipe off of the land the human race that I’ve created: from human beings to livestock to the crawling things to the birds in the skies, because I regret I ever made them.” But as for Noah, the Lord approved of him.”
Genesis 6:5-8 CEB
We are not evil because we do evil things.
We are evil because we think evil thoughts.
We think evil thoughts because we have evil hearts.
Evil hearts break God’s heart.
That’s why He wanted to start over.
But He started over in a different way.
He started over by giving us a second chance and to exchange our evil heart for a new heart fueled by what Jesus did for us in living the perfect life we should have lived; dying the death we deserved to die; and allowing us to share in His resurrected life.
