We Remain Weak, Rebellious and Very Sinful People

The predicament we all share is that while we are new creations in Christ (II Corinthians 5:17) and have been given living hearts with which to know and worship God (Ezekiel 36:26-27), we are still very sinful people.  We remain weak, rebellious and inclined toward drifting away from God until the day we see him face to face.  Along with the hymn writer, each one of us can say that we are “prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love.”
