Breaking Self-Chains ~ Part Two

It is so easy to blame our shortcomings onto others. We do that when we don’t want to face the truth about our heart. Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?” 

Hebrews 3:13 says, “…lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” A deceived person does not know, recognize, and acknowledge that they are deceived. Last night I started to read Luke 24. I only got to verse 16 when the words arrested me.

Jesus had come up to join two of His disciples. They were discussing His death and burial. It says, “But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him.” What blocks us from knowing the Lord? 2 Peter 1:3-4 says that He has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness through our knowledge of Him.
