So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Romans 10:17 (NKJV)

A Heart Right With God - Part 2

First of all: A heart right with God is above in importance in all things!

  • A heart in fellowship with God is more than all the burnt offerings
  • A heart worship is better than Sabbath observance
  • A heart right with God is better than study and knowledge
  • A heart right with God is more important than the gifts of the ministry
  • A heart right with God is more important than strong faith

Secondly: Religious form without heart is an abomination to God, God despises it!

  • Isaiah 66:2-3
  • I Corinthians 13:1-3

Thirdly: An outward form of worship and religion is a lot easier than heart worship!

  • Isaiah 29:13
  • Matthew 15:8
  • Mark 7:6
  • Ezekiel 33:31
  • Hebrews 3:12

Fourthly: It’s easier to preach grace than to produce grace and it’s easier to preach a sovereign God than to trust a sovereign God!

  • Matthew 7:22-23

How is a right heart received?

  • By the grace of God (Ezekiel 36, Psalm 51)
  • By the merits and righteousness of Jesus Christ! (Galatians 2:20)
  • By the Spirit of God (Romans 8:9)
  • By taking up your abode at the cross and living there
