Human Nature

{HTB/Nicky Gumbel's Bible in One Year}

The Nobel Prize winner and most important Russian literary artist of the second half of the twentieth century, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918–2008), who was imprisoned for eight years for criticising Stalin, wrote, ‘The line separating good and evil passes, not through states, nor through classes, nor between political parties ... but right through every human heart – and through all human hearts.’

We are all created in the image of God. Human beings are capable of acts of great love, courage and heroism. On the other hand, not one of us (apart from Jesus) is without sin. In the passages for today we see some of the worst aspects of human nature.

1. Beware of the weakness of human nature in relation to money and sex Proverbs 6:30-35
2. See how sinful nature led to the death of Jesus and be challenged to live differently Mark 14:43-72
3. Understand the relationship between human nature and the law of God Leviticus 19:1-20:27
