That verse sounds scary, doesn’t it? It sounds like spiritual open-heart surgery, in which the scalpel of God’s Word cuts away at the calluses that desensitize us to God. But if we need open-heart surgery, we’d be unwise to avoid it.
We need the spiritual heart surgery that only God’s Word can perform. Without it our hearts will grow hard toward the Lord we love. We can thank God that there’s hope for our depraved hearts.
So let’s open our hearts today to the Great Physician and the scalpel of his Word. It will only do us good!
