Is Your Love for God Sincere?


Jeremiah 17:9
9  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Jeremiah 20:12
12  But, O Lord of hosts, that triest the righteous, and seest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have I opened my cause.

Job 1:6
6  Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.

Gen 22:2
2  And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

Main Points:

  • Testing is a normal part of righteous living.
  • Experiencing trials shouldn’t be unusual for believers. All righteous people are tested from time to time by the One who created them.
  • The Lord already knows our hearts.
  • He uses tests to reveal to us our priorities so we can adjust them if necessary.
  • Your actions determine your love for God.
