Text: Jeremiah 17.9-10
While Agur’s desire was to live in harmony with God, and was the basis of his prayer (Proverbs 30.7-9), he knew there was one significant obstacle in his path: his heart. He knew his heart and what he was capable of doing. It wasn’t good. He would have agreed with the Old Testament prophet Jeremiah, “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it” (Jeremiah 17.9)?
Only the saving grace of Jesus can “cure” our sinful hearts. He’s the only one who can. Remind yourself of God’s glorious grace by listening to Elevation Worship’s “Grace So Glorious.”
