My most responded to point from my current sermon series The Heart of The Matter, is reflected by the following statement.
A passionate and healthy desire for God and others is cultivated, never left to chance.
My wife sums it up this way.
Uncultivated desire by its very nature becomes unhealthy.
She also notes these thoughts from this Sunday’s (2/26/12) message, A Heart of a God.
Psalm 37:4 NIV
Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Her recording of my translation of Psalms 37:4
Take delight in the Lord and he will give you desires that are beyond anything you could desire on your own. ‘What you desire now is far less than what I have for you. Let me change your desires so that I can delight you with them.’
And her noting of the overall theme of the message.
Trust spirals our life TO God and we live LIFE, LIFE and more LIFE. Bigger and better than we ever imagined or was ever imagined for us.
