6 From the sole of the foot even to the head,
there is no soundness in it,
but bruises and sores
and raw wounds;
they are not pressed out or bound up
or softened with oil.
7 Your country lies desolate;
your cities are burned with fire;
in your very presence
foreigners devour your land;
it is desolate, as overthrown by foreigners.
8 And the daughter of Zion is left
like a booth in a vineyard,
like a lodge in a cucumber field,
like a beseiged city.
How desperate is our condition? How complete are the ravages of our disease? How dire is the diagnosis? How totally sick are we in our sin?
100% not well.
We are completely consumed by the consequence of sin.
Despite your best efforts to quarantine sin to just that one area of your life, it has totally devastated all parts (or, it will break out of the solitary confinement you thought it was locked up in and spread it’s destruction to the rest of your life.)
Before you will recognize just how great a Savior Jesus is, you need a correct understanding of your own sinful nature.
