It's Not a Secret
Discerning the Heart of God
Synopsis: It's not a secret; in fact, it's not really that difficult to
discern the Heart of God. The words of the prophets continue to proclaim to
those who will hear. God desires justice. Jesus came to earth as a living
demonstration of what is at the heart of God. Love is what God desires.
Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5 declares what it that God the
Father blesses. The disciples taught the same thing to the church following
Christ's ascension. Paul declared that when he was weak God was strong.
James simply said that if you want to worship God then you need to be sure
your religion reflects the heart of God. Elements of "true religion"
involve our lives in activities initiated in the heart of God.
