Many Christians feel that the term “hardness of heart” is negative. They, therefore, are turned off by any minister who mentions it. I believe this is a lack of understanding regarding what the term references. Most of us would never believe that our hearts could be “hardened.” After all, we have been made “new creations”
Jesus came to this earth to stand as our sacrificial Passover lamb. Our repentance, goodness, and promises to work harder will never replace the redemptive work He completed on the cross.
