Step 7: Part 1 A Humble Heart and Extravagant Grace
“Life Change from the Heart” is a sermon series on how God changes us from the heart through the gospel. How does change from the heart happen? After we surrender our life to God, we start the process of cleaning the inside of the cup, our heart. We go through an extensive process of self-examination to find self-indulgence in our heart, confession of what we find, and repentance. Then, step 7 says we “humbly ask God to remove our shortcomings.” How does God remove our shortcomings? It is through grace. Kevin shared from the parable of the two sons, commonly known as the parable of the prodigal son. From that parable, Kevin shared that (1) God is the God of extravagant grace; (2) grace changes our heart; and (3) grace only works through humility.
