Luke 6:43-49 - 7.3.11 - Pastor Clay Smith
- Your Heart determines your Life (Big Truth)
The fastest way to know what is in someone's heart it to listen to what comes out of their mouth.
Galatians 5: 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy, drunkenness, orgies (to utterly loose control over/with something)
This is a spiritual checklist of what you may possibly have in your heart. Do inventory - what's in your heart. The ones listed above are destructive!
But then Paul goes on...v22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law
Our lives have 2 store rooms. One with good things, one with bad. Fill one. Starve another. What forces are really driving your life? Good or bad?
How do you react in crisis? In fights, dealing with death, work pressures, friends betrayals...
1. This passage challenges us to accept the mastery of Jesus. -understand that Jesus understands MORE ABOUT EVERYTHING than we do. choose to listen to Him and obey Him.
2. Listen to His words. This means that you focus on them. Prayer life and God's word are vital. No matter what you are facing there is a bible story that relates to you.
3. Do Jesus' words.
4. Dig deeper. "a wise man digs a firm foundation." simply going to church and shallow level faith is NOT going to give you a firm foundation. Dig deeper. Face the real truths about your life. Face things you don't even want to face. It will hurt. It may be uncomfortable. Dig deeper because the storm is coming.
