069: How to Love God (Part 2)

Dec 20, 2018 | Apologetics, Christian Living, Podcast, Theology

Have you ever thought about the incomprehensibility of finite creatures like you me loving the infinite, eternal God of all glory?

It’s amazing to think that God loves us; but how do we love him? Is it even possible?

Using insights from the Bible, philosophy, and even science, we’re embarking on an in-depth study to find the answer to the question of how to love God.

In Luke 10, Jesus affirms the response of a religious lawyer who quotes the Hebrew Bible’s teaching on the matter: “And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself” (Luke 10:27).

We’re in lesson two of a series exploring the heart, soul, strength, and mind. Today, we begin with an important announcement regarding a project we’ve been working on for some time now, The Creation Academy. Then, we begin looking at the biblical notion of the “heart.”

The Bible teaches many important things about the heart. The heart is wicked and opposed to the things of God. Yet, the heart is able to changed by God and created anew! Listen in as we explore how God intended our heart to be used as our full expression of love toward him.

In this lesson, you’ll learn:

  1. How the biblical usage of the word “heart” differs from our usage today, and what that means for how we love God.
  2. Why the key to loving God fully is the proper orientation of the heart toward him.
  3. Why the heart is sinful and wicked from birth, and how God’s overcoming grace works to change it.
