Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, circumcise your hearts, you men of Judah and people of Jerusalem, or my wrath will break out and burn like fire because of the evil you have done – burn with no one to quench it
Circumcision was a sign of the original covenant with Israel and God.. It made the Jews different in the sight of men, and sealed them to God. Now, the Lord is calling them to circumcise their hearts. Don’t embrace just the physical sign of belonging to God – change your hearts! Don’t just follow the Law and its rituals. Commit yourselves to Me. Return to Me, do things My way, and let Me bless and protect you. We are called to the same in our day. It isn’t just attending church or going to Bible Study or teaching Sunday School class. We are sealed to God for eternity through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. Walk in His way. Love His Word and teach others. If you have fallen away from faith or a close walk with God, He invites you to return. Repent of your sin and He will be faithful to forgive it and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. A clean heart!!
