have no part or portion in this matter, for your heart is not right
before God. For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in the
bondage of iniquity.
Did you know that a man can adhere to the church and
still have sin lurking in his heart? When Simon the sorcerer heard
Philip preach, he was drawn to Jesus, baptized, and began following
Philip everywhere. But God knows the true motives of our hearts. Simon
soon came face-to-face with Peter. The Bible tells us that when Simon
offered the apostles money for the gift of the Holy Spirit, the true
motives of his heart were revealed. Peter, perceiving that Simon’s
relationship with God was at issue, responded urgently, saying, “Repent
of this wickedness of yours, and pray the Lord that if possible, the
intention of your heart may be forgiven you” (Acts 8:22, NASB).
