THE HOLY HEART ASSOCIATION – COMMITMENT
July 21, 2019
From the nice, refreshing Sundays of late spring to now the double dog days of mid-summer, we have been exploring what it means to become card-carrying members of the Holy Heart Association…that is, to embrace the virtues of the heart from a biblical vantage point. We are discussing such virtues as courage, faith, direction, character, discernment, joy, simplicity, righteousness and gratitude. Yes, we are moving beyond the American Heart Association to become full-fledged members of the Holy Heart Association!
This morning’s message is centered around the virtue of COMMITMENT.
Our key verse is the first portion of Matthew 22:37. Jesus says,
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart…
To love the Lord our God with all our heart is to stake our lives upon God in radical, unwavering commitment. And yet, when it comes to such commitment, we often find ourselves searching for excuses.
