Sermon Outline: A Matter of the Heart

The following is the sermon outline given by Rev Isaac Quan. He will be speaking to us on 2 Sep. Since we don’t use printed weekly anymore, I post it here and now, so that I won’t “forget.” 😉

SERMON NOTES

A MATTER OF THE HEART (LUKE 10:25-37)

Rev. Isaac Quan

“ The core, the center to which every other component of the self owes its proper functioning is the heart. The human heart is the executive of human life..” (Dallas Willard, Renovation of the Heart)

1. WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS OF THE HEART, WHO DO WE ______ FIRST?

Who do we give that heart examination to? Am I testing myself before I test someone else? Is my heart being changed?

2. IN OUR LIVES, IS IT JUST __________, OR IS IT REALLY A CHANGED HEART?

Is it just what we believe in? Is it just our title?

Marks of a changed heart: Am I patient? Am I kind? Do I envy? Do I boast? Am I proud?…

3. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PERSON WITH THE CHANGED HEART AND ONES WHO DIDN’T?

There was one who blessed and two that did not.

GO DO LIKEWISE.

Are there people we can help out this week? Are there people we can pray for? Are there people we can make up with? Are there people we can love?
