How's this for a hard hitting question?: "What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you?" [James 4:1] In today's message we are challenged to look at our 'outside' issues and see if they reveal an 'inside' issue.
Near the end of the sermon there is a few moments of silence to pray one or both of these prayers:
- "Lord, I believe my heart is right with You! In desiring reconciliation with [insert a person's name], I pray that you would help them to deal with their Lordship issues. I pray that they might surrender first to You, stop being at war with You so that the pathway to my reconciliation with them may happen.
- Psalm 139:23,24 "Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!"
