Jeremiah 17:1-9 — On Wednesday last week a horrific crime was committed on a suburban street in Brisbane. It was a crime that left many shocked, shaken and totally bewildered. The response in the media and elsewhere has highlighted the confusion there is when it comes to the reality of evil and the secular worldview.
Why tragedies such as these are particularly difficult for people to process is because they reveal some very uncomfortable truths about human nature. They remind us that we are the cause of all of society’s problems.
In this sermon, we consider what the Scripture teaches us about the human heart and about our great need for a fundamental change within. We are reminded of our great need, and of God’s amazing grace.
