Cure for the Plague of the Heart

Cure for the Plague of the Heart

1 Kings 8:38-40

Plagues are terrifying, unpredictable and inescapable. Even worse than physical plagues is the spiritual plague of the heart: sin. This plague affects all people in all places at all times. As we see the symptoms of this plague in our lives, we can rejoice that there is a cure for our sin. Solomon’s prayer in this chapter was answered in Christ who became accursed for us so that we can be healed.
