The Pure in Heart

Jeff was away at a family member’s wedding this weekend, so I was filling in for the message this morning. He had planned out this series all the way through, but as I was praying and studying for this message, I felt like I needed to go another direction. Since Jeff did the same thing last week and the results were God-sized, I figured I had the liberty to do the same.

I felt like there were a lot of people who were watching other people describe how they were experiencing God, and they were wondering, “What’s wrong with me?” I attempted to provide some solutions to why some people might not be experiencing God in their lives:

  1. Too Far
  2. Too Sinful
  3. Too Busy
  4. Too Selfish
  5. Too Stagnant

To get an explanation of these, you can listen to the message here. I pray that it helps. Remove any impurities from your heart. For “blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” (Matt. 5:8).The praise band led in worship with these songs today:

  • Take Me There – Watermark
  • God of This City – Bluetree
  • Everlasting God – Brenton Brown
  • Uncreated One – Chris Tomlin

Plus, I’m attaching the video I used from Sunday. Remember – God, as your Father, delights in seeing you delight in him!
