Quotes Worth Pondering – Richard Stearns

QuotesWorthPondering“As followers of Christ, we must become acutely aware of the darkness and hardness of the human heart. God is certainly aware. He spoke of it when He said of His people, “I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh”(Ezekiel 11:9) It is our “stony hearts” that are the root cause not only of apathy toward our fellow man but even of hatred, murder, and genocide. Divided between the things of God and the things of the world, a “heart of stone” is incapable of loving the poor unless God changes it to a heart of “flesh”. Should this not cause us to plead with God daily, as Bob Pierce did, for our hearts to “be broken by the things that break the heart of God”? (p.102, The Hole In Our Gospel)
