Are you serving God with your whole heart?

I will praise You with my whole heart; Before the gods I will sing praises to You. Psalm 138:1

How many of us really serve God with our WHOLE HEART? Let’s take some time to examine our hearts:

  • Who can you think of that you know that serve the Lord with their WHOLE heart?
  • For example, David was called a man after God’s own heart–even though he fell into sin with Bathsheba and even though David’s family was in turmoil all his life.
  • Most people would look at the life of David and find fault with him. But God looks at the heart. God knew David loved Him with his whole heart.
  • Some people are just going through the motions.
  • We want to be WHOLE HEARTED with God and not HALF-HEARTED!
  • What else is in your heart that you love more than God?
  • If there is something in our life that is competing for our love for God, it will try to dominate us and cause us to backslide.
  • Our conversation will start to change. They will start speaking more worldly than godly. They start running with a different crowd, and even isolating themselves. They don’t want anything to do with people.
  • God is the opposite. When your heart is filled with wanting to please God, you want to love people. God is about people.
  • The more room we make for God, the more room we will have for people.
  • The middle letter in the word pride is “i”. We need to focus on God more than ourselves.
  • Sometimes the wrong thoughts try to creep into our minds. Put up a fight against those thoughts in order to draw close to God. Push away doubt, discouragement, depression, fear, and anything else negative.
  • Decide to be a person that is serving God with his or her whole heart. The Apostle Paul is a good example of someone who decided to serve God whole-heartedly.
  • Sometimes our heart is so caught up on the things of the world that we don’t have time for God except for when we go to church or login to online church.
  • What does a person who serves God with their whole heart do?
    • They serve with sincerity (they are honest with God).
    • They serve God without limitations.
    • They put God first all the time.
    • They can speak to anyone about God without being ashamed of Jesus.
    • They serve faithfully without complaining or murmuring.
  • Anything that’s sitting on the throne of our heart other than God, needs to come down–especially self.
  • Ask yourself again–is God FIRST in your life?
  • The greatest enemy to putting God first is not the devil, it is your own flesh.
  • Romans 8:5-8 New King James VersionFor those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
