    TOPIC: TRUE CIRCUMCISION


    TEXT: ROMANS 2:29
    BIBLE TEXT:
    "But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God" (Romans 2:29).

    The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says that the benefits of circumcision outweigh the risks. Some of these benefits include easier hygiene, decreased risk of urinary tract infections, decreased risk of sexually transmitted infections (including HIV), prevention of penile problems and decreased risk of penile cancer (and cervical cancer in the female partner).

     Circumcision is enjoined on the Jews as a token of the Abrahamic Covenant and it is a reproach for an Israelite to be uncircumcised. The New Testament however has a different perspective on circumcision. Whatever health benefits it is purported to have, circumcision is only a religious ritual with no moral or spiritual benefit.

    A circumcised body and a sinful heart are at odds with each other. The only true circumcision is that of the heart – the removal of the foreskin of the heart (Deuteronomy 10:16). A circumcised heart is a purified heart. It is a heart cleansed from sin and defilement by the blood of Jesus and the Holy Spirit of God. Seek true circumcision today.


    Challenge: True circumcision is heart purity.
    Prayer: Lord, purify my heart.
    Quote: Seek true circumcision today
    Bible Reading in one Year: Colossians 2:10-13
