We come to a topical sermon wherein we see the great sin of being wearied of God. We will learn how to discover if we are weary of Him and what remedies to take to combat our weariness - so that we may instead, take delight in the Lord and desire Him as the object of our greatest affection, particularly, as He has revealed Himself to us in Jesus Christ. Isaiah 43:22.
We should examine ourselves honestly about whether our heart is a place where the Lord would be pleased to dwell. Is your heart fretful, fearful, troubled? None of us enjoy the company of someone who is always like that, and neither does God. Our heart is where we feel, it is where we desire; out of the heart are the issues of life, not the mind. It is with the HEART that man believeth unto righteousness. God must have our HEART, and not just our mind's consent. Dead religion has no feeling, but God dwelling in the heart DOES. It adds that dimension that makes life a journey instead of a prision.
Matt and Alan continue and finish up Philippians.
