What kind of heart has God given you?
Exodus 10-11/Romans 4-6

How to get the most out of Hungry Bible


OT

11:9-10 Although Moses and Aaron did these miracles in Pharaoh’s presence, the LORD hardened his heart so he wouldn’t let the Israelites leave the country.

NT

5:3-5 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us–they help us learn to endure. And endurance develops strength of character in us, and character strengthens our confident expectation of salvation. And this expectation will not disappoint us. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

6:19 I speak this way, using the illustration of slaves and masters, because it is easy to understand. Before, you let yourselves be slaves of impurity and lawlessness. Now you must choose to be slaves of righteousness so that you will become holy.

Righteousness – trigger word
What comes into your thoughts when you see or hear that word?

Continue to behold God – that makes you a mirror
My personal connection to Him makes way for His life to be seen
Do not cloud that


Perspective

We are implements of service and witness in God’s hands
We have no aim but His
