The Flood and Jesus

This hit me like an unexpected pillow smacked to my face while I was walking to work (I wanted to cry not because of the pain but because of the humility felt for such an undeserving revelation).

Decreation – to go back to the “creation state” (from Bible Project Podcast)
What decreation: the flood

If one thinks about it, God showed us through the flood that destroying all humanity and making a new generation again will never save us from our sins.

Eventually, after God killed all the sinful humans through the flood, the generation after Noah and his sons still made the same, if not worse mistakes and sins. It happened over and over and over again.

It is the innate human heart condition of immorality and rebellion against God that makes us do what we do: to go after other gods, especially the idols of ourselves. We are innately sinful, born with desires that don’t please God and destroying humanity with all of God’s power and might will not, and never change that.

Then, how?

Solution: Grace through Jesus Christ

Only by the Cross of Calvary

The Son of Man, Son of God

The Way, the Truth and the Life

Indeed, no one comes to the Father

without sin and in full righteousness

unless He accepts the Savior, the King, the Messiah

The only Name given among men under heaven by which all who accepts Him can be saved (Acts 4:12)

only by and through Him, Christ Jesus.

One Honest Prayer from the Heart

A heart where You rule and reign
A heart that beats only for You
A heart that seeks to please You
A heart that is after Your own heart

Jeremiah 29: 13

“And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart”.

A promise that really touched my heart.

A promise that I’ve taken hold of especially at times when I knew I had nurtured the callousness of my heart.

This stubborn, stubborn heart that had swayed from Your path countless of times.

A heart that, despite its rebellious nature, cries for freedom and salvation; desiring for deliverance from its stiff-necked, sinful nature.

A heart that is too weak to fight its desire for this world.

A heart that is too proud and selfish to admit that it wants You above anything else.

And yet..

..when this heart remembers this staggering promise..

..it remembers that the only reason where it is right now is only because of You

and not because of its own efforts..

..it is humbled down, and seeks after its Maker and Lover earnestly..

So Lord Jesus.. take the callousness, take the stubbornness, the procrastinating spirit and the tendency to drift away…

This heart wants You to take them away

This heart wants You to help it deny itself and shun away from the worldly pleasures that is fleeting and empty and leaves it in despair in the end.

This hearts admits it needs You

This heart admits that it wants to come back to You

To that season when it can recognize and quiver whenever it hears Your voice as its only Shepherd

This heart wants that

Because that is the only place this heart is filled with exceedingly great joy and is fully fully satisfied.

Change this heart Oh Lord God

Nothing is impossible with You

No callousness nor stubbornness can separate this heart from You and from Your love

Make this heart pure

A heart that fixes its vision of You and to You

A heart that hates to sin and flees from sin at all cost

A heart that is not divided but determined

A heart where You rule and reign

A heart that beats only for You

A heart that is after Your own heart
