This week we begin a new sermon series called “The Emotional Life of the Christian.” How do emotions fit into our understanding of the sovereignty of God? Are we supposed to submit to emotions or squash them? Do we trust them or dismiss them? In this series we will consider that God has created us with both a mind and a heart. Therefore, growing in godliness impacts both how we live and how we feel.
Scripture: Zephaniah 3:14-17

Q. What does God’s law require of us?
A. Christ teaches us this in a summary in Matthew 22: “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets.”
