The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of acontrite spirit. Psalm 34:18The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. Psalm 51:17
We’ve been talking about what it means to have a heart that pleases God in this new year. If we want to please God we must know what displeases Him. God is displeased sin. It goes against his very nature. When our hearts are content with sin, then we find ourselves in a dangerous place.
Psalm 34:18 literally says that God comes near to the person who has a heart that hates sin. He saves the one who is quick to seek forgiveness and change. Psalm 51:17 says that God is pleased with our brokenness over sin more than the sacrifices we make to Him.
div>Is there a sin your life? Are you ok with it? If you want your heart to be new this year, you’ve got to repent of it. Turn from your sin. Ask God for forgiveness. He’ll forgive you!
