Pursuing the Elusive Whole Heart

Pastor Jay continues his “Guard Your Heart” series this week, with a sermon titled “Pursuing the Elusive Whole Heart”, based on Deuteronomy 6:4-5.

Deuteronomy 6:4-5 (ESV)

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

Pursue a whole-hearted love of God.

Three steps in that pursuit:

  1. Consider its centrality.
  2. Understand its meaning.
  3. Heed its implications.

Parent Connection Questions:

  • What does it mean that we are to love God with our whole heart?
  • Are there things that we love more than Him? What are those things?
  • How are we to think about all the good things that God gives us? Can we love the giver and His gifts?
