I Want to Give My Heart to Jesus, part 1
Today we embark on a multi-part study of salvation. It is a time for watchfulness. Free-floating ideas abound around us, left open, undefined, exploitable by those who would teach a peace-and-safety gospel. But if we will work through the inspired information point by point, there is much more than that for us as we pin things down where inspiration pins them down. Although surrounded by all the confusion, still, the people of God long to give their hearts to Jesus. Still they want to know how to find God, what salvation means, and how their life can be filled with all blessing.
In this, our first presentation, we consider just what is our human nature. What is my heart that I would give to God? What defines the boundaries of the salvation problem?
In the next presentation we turn our attention especially to Jesus. What is He? Alien, human, or God or both or neither? Why would we give our hearts to Him?
In the following presentations we'll chase salvation-understanding through the centuries, and see where that takes us to today.
In the last presentation, we'll be especially interested in application. How and when shall I give my heart to Jesus? We'll consider the answers.
Weigh, my brothers and sisters, these points carefully, that all of us may give to Him what only we have to give; our hearts; and receive what He only has to give; salvation in all of its fullness.Read more...

I want that this message today shall be a real spiritual help to you, not just the filling in of a few minutes on a Sabbath morning. Turn with me to the book of Colossians, chapter one, verses 27-29 and read:Read more...
