The Tested Heart

Pastor Jay continues his “Guard Your Heart” series this week, with a sermon titled “The Tested Heart,” from Jeremiah 17:10.

Jeremiah 17:10 (ESV)

“I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.”

God tests the heart.

  • What does God test?
  • He tests our obedience.
  • He tests our faith.
  • He tests our love.
  • Why is His testing good for our hearts?
  • Because it reveals sin.
  • Because it reveals God’s love to us.
