Ebbie Davis California: Let's pray today for one of our missionaries in California. Ebbie Davis serves in San Diego. More than three million people live in and around the city and fewer than 10 percent of them are evangelical Christians. Ebbie is working with eight students in a program of our North American Mission Board called NextGen. They're helping plant new churches urgently needed in the area. We support Ebbie and the mission board through the Cooperative Program.

Our nature, by the corruption of the first sin, so deeply curved in on itself that it not only bends the best gifts of God towards itself and enjoys them (as is plain in the works-righteous and hypocrites), or rather even uses God himself in order to attain these gifts, but it also fails to realize that it so wickedly, curvedly, and viciously seeks all things, even God, for its own sake. – MARTIN LUTHER
1. THE HEART CURVED INWARD MISSES THE KINGDOM OF GOD BY FOCUSING ON THE STUFF OF THIS WORLD
2. THE HEART CURVED INWARD MISSES THE KINGDOM BY SHORT-CIRCUITING GOD’S ECONOMY
3. THE HEART CURVED INWARD IS ANXIOUS
4. THE HEART CURVED INWARD IS FAITHLESS
5. THE HEART CURVED INWARD LOOKS LIKE THE WORLD THAT IS PASSING AWAY
6. THE HEART CURVED INWARD WILL ULTIMATELY GET WHAT IT WANTS
