“But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin” (Hebrews 3:13).

God’s word is either fulfilling its work in us–bringing transformation, guiding in obedience, birthing daily renewal and understanding–or our hearts are being hardened against it by disobedience and indifference. By refusing to embrace the life of repentance; living in outright defiance to God’s word, a person eventually crosses a dangerous and imperceptible line. It’s the point at which the heart becomes so hard that what was once an attitude of “I will not repent,” gives way to “I cannot repent.” Willful disobedience diminishes our perceptiveness of God’s word and Spirit as he seeks to work in our lives.
