Text: Jer. 17:10

Introduction

As we discovered, the human heart is deceitful, desperately wicked and beyond cure. (Jer. 17:9,10). However, the heart of man was not like that when God first created it. (Gen. l:31a). When God created man. He was having constant fellowship with him (man) (Gen. 3:8). Unfortunately, man lost this opportunity when he conspired with the devil to rebel against God by eating the forbidden fruit. Ever since. God has been looking for ways of restoring this fellowship.
