Deprived or Depraved?

12 July 2020



Isaiah 38:10


After learning that he is going to die, King Hezekiah has an epic meltdown and laments in Isaiah 38:10 that he is being deprived of life. In much the same way, we often have a similar mindset of feeling underprivileged, slighted, or wanting because of our circumstances. Yet God’s Word gives us clarity on what we do and do not deserve because of our depraved condition, and how everything is working together for good through Jesus Christ.
