Where is Your Heart?

Bible Study

Don’t just take our word for it . . . take His! We would encourage you to spend time examining the following Scriptures that shaped this sermon:Luke 12:32-40

Sermon Outline

Jesus told his disciples that wherever our treasure is, there our hearts will be as well. As a result, we often find our hearts dwelling in things that fail, can be taken away and can be destroyed.

Where is your treasure? How do you know? What happens when we love and trust things? Jesus offers a profound way to reinvest our treasure and relocate our hearts in the Kingdom of God. When we do, we find our hearts in a place that will never fail, where they can never be stolen and will never be destroyed.
