MAIN POINT: How you experience God depends upon the condition of your heart. CHALLENGE QUESTION: Is my heart hardened in a specific area or is it hardened completely? KEY VERSE: "Search me O God, and know my heart…see if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me to the way of everlasting." – Psalm 139:23-24 SCRIPTURE REFERENCES: Jeremiah 17:9, Mark 7:21-23, Psalm 44:21, Proverbs 4:23, Romans 5:3-5, Obadiah 3, Proverbs 14:12, James 1:14-15, John 1 SERIES DESCRIPTION: We all want to experience God more—to know Him, to feel His presence, to see Him working through us—but we’re not always willing to go to the “dirty areas” in our life: to learn what we need to learn, to do what we need to do, the work to clear away the things that hold us back. For us to experience God in a life-transforming way, we have to actively prepare the soil of our hearts so that God’s principles, promises, and power can take root and grow.
