Bible Text: Matthew 15:8-9 | Preacher: Todd Barnes
Many people say that they love God. Perhaps you say the same thing. Assuming you do, the question is: does God agree with you? Jesus said of the Pharisees and the scribes: “These people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me….” Matthew 15:8-9. When we say we love Him, God knows whether or not our statement is truly sincere. How does God evaluate our “love” for Him? What things does He look at? We pray that armed with this information directly from the Word of God, you can ensure that in the eyes of the Lord your love is sincere, and not regarded by Him as just lip-service.
