Come dive into God’s Word with me!
Circumcision is on my mind. (I know, a deep subject not often talked about or studied today!)
Circumcision of the heart – that has kept going through my mind this morning. It made me wanna dive into God’s Word and find out what He was saying to me!
Immediately, I opened to the second chapter of Romans: “A man is not a Jew if he is only one outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical. No, a man is a Jew if he is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a man’s praise is not from men, but from God. What advantage, then, is there in being a Jew, or what value is there in circumcision? Much in every way! First of all… (Romans 2:28,29 and 3:1,2; NIV).
As you search and roam the Scripture, remember this: circumcision signified Israel’s covenent relationship with God.
I know there’s a lot for us to think about here, but here’s what keeps sticking with me: the outward and physical vs. the heart
