"Behold the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will punish all those who are circumcised merely in the flesh." ESV
Circumcision of the flesh is a physical act representing the covenant between God and His people to be a pure, separate, and holy people. The Lord has declared to us that circumcision of the heart is a personal covenant that occurs when we commit our will over to Him. We can attend church regularly, know the Bible inside and out, and talk the Christian talk, but not have hearts that have been circumcised. If that's the case, then we are merely dressed up to look like Christians; we are imposters.
Heavenly Father, search our hearts and reveal to us any false pretense, any hypocrisy, any impurity that remains in our hearts. We desire to be washed clean by the blood of Jesus Christ and to serve You with circumcised hearts. We pray in His precious name, Amen.
