September 2016

Heart Condition
Randy Odom writes, "In September I am looking forward starting our new five-week message series. Five of us will be sharing messages with us on the themes - “Guard Your Heart,” “Blinders of the Heart,” “Battle for the Heart,” “A New Heart” and “Following God’s Heart.”

"According to the World Health Organization (WHO), heart disease is "the number 1 cause of death globally: more people die annually from heart disease than from any other cause. An estimated 17.5 million people died from heart disease in 2012, representing 31% of all global deaths.” These statistics are staggering!

"Humanity’s spiritual heart is in even worse condition. Jeremiah 17:9 says, "The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?” Thankfully, as followers of Jesus, not only do we know that our Great Physician has diagnosed the extent of our spiritual heart condition, but He has taken the steps necessary not just to cure our sin-diseased heart, but to give us a “heart transplant.” "I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart” Jeremiah 36:26.

"As we look together at God’s Word for the next five weeks, let’s ask Him to reveal those places in our hearts where we still need work and let’s surrender to the merciful and skillful scalpel of His Holy Spirit as He creates in each one of us a pure heart."
