Hymn 4 – I Love you Lord 

The Message was given by – Cliff Neill on the topic of Hearts.2015-03-07 Cliff Neill gives the Sermon
Are we nearly there yet? Most children on a journey will keep repeating  this. Our journey with God lasts a lifetime. We want to keep asking how long Lord? Revelation 6:10. It is easy to lose heart. Our hearts are a mystery. We hear of black hearts, brave hearts, hearts of gold and heartaches. Hundreds of songs have been written about our hearts. For example ” I left my heart in San Francisco”. We know that we should love God with all our heart. Why is our heart so important? Proverbs 4:23 tells that it is a well spring of life, a treasure, a fountain within us. We all have our deep places within us that only God really knows. Jeremiah 17:9. We need a heart of flesh not stone. Ezekiel 11:19. God pours love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. Romans 5:5. He is always with us. When we began our walk with God, we had a glad heart. New love can fade over the years and we can lose the joy of our relationship with God. We should switch off the outside and be still and silent on the inside, ready to listen to God. We read in 1 Samuel 16 how God chose David to be King, and how God looks at our heart and not our physical appearance. Verse 7. We should rest in Christ because he died for us. Jesus spoke to hearts and not to heads. He shows the lost the way back to the shepherd. In him we have been given all that we need. 

Final Hymn was Lord I Come to You after which the Closing Prayer was given by James Esom.

Fellowship continued over refreshments in the Church Hall.
