A Jealous God Longs for Your Affections

Sunday Musings

Preached on Ezra 7:6-10 this morning. Here’s the outline:

We need to be doers of the word, walking into the day with hearts atune and ready to do the will of God. Here’s how the process starts.

  1. Set Your Heart in the Direction of the Word of God.
  2. Set the Pattern of Your Heart to Study the Word of God.
  3. Set the Behavior of Your Life to Do the Word of God.
  4. Make it Your Ambition and Practice to Teach the Word of God.

“God wants to be the primary pursuit and goal of all that you study. He wants to be at the center of your intellectual and emotional universe. He is a jealous God and He longs for your affections.”

The reward for pursuing Him is that he gives us Himself. He gives us the greatest gift He could give.
