The Heartbeat of God
(John 3:16 NKJV) “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
(Mark 7:21-23 NLT) For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness…”
√ The LOST.
(Luke 15:4-7 NKJV) “What man having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?
√ Our REPENTANCE.
(Acts 3:19 NKJV) “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,
(Psalm 103:12 NLT) He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.
√ A true RELATIONSHIP.
(John 1:12 NLT) But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.
HOW WE HEAR HIS HEART:
√ Stop BEING SELFISH.
(Luke 9:23 NLT) Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me.
√ Come CLOSE.
(Hebrews 4:14-16 NLT) So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God.
√ Be QUIET.
(Luke 10:38-42 NLT) …Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing…But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”
(Revelation 21:3-5 NLT) “Look, God’s home is now among his people! God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever….”
