Podcast 2: The Heart of God
What does God have to say in His word of God about building families? We will be studying verses along this line in successive broadcasts, but before examining scripture, let’s consider the heart of God. I have an affinity for the book of Deuteronomy, which is the essence of the Pentateuch and the ministry of Moses.
Even though the Ten Commandments as dictated by God Himself are found in the fifth chapter of this book, I believe the 29th verse captures the Heart of God and why he has given us these commands.
Deuteronomy 5:29 Oh that they had such a heart as this always, to fear me and to keep all my commandments, that it might go well with them and with their descendants forever!
God loves us and desires only good for us, and our families, forever. In this episode, I will read several passages of scripture to reinforce God’s goodness and care for His people.
His love is unconditional, unchanging, given without reservation, and never ceases. His love is not dependent on our behavior, for He loved us while we were sinners. There is nothing we can do to make God love us more. He can’t love us more than He already does, and He won’t love us any less.
He is our God and we are His people, period.
May the Good Holy Spirit help us to comprehend and experience afresh this eternal truth, for: God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Romans 5:5
