"Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me" John 14:1
DEUTERONOMY 6:4-9 Print E-mail
Written by Kevin L. Howard   



Purpose of sermon: Show that we are called to whole heartedly love God, and, thus, teach his Word to our children.


Introduction: We are accustomed to showing affection to people only after they have first shown us compassion.  This passage calls upon believers to love God because of who he is.  (And, of course, he has already shown us a great deal of compassion.)


Verses 4-5

1. God's oneness deserves devotion.

a. Love him for who he is.

b. Love him with all we are.


Verses 6-9

2. God's Word demands diligence.

a. Put it in our hearts.

b. Parents teach it to children (diligently and consistently).

c. Surround our lives with it through constant reminders.

d. Let it affect every area of our lives.


Conclusion: We have all slacked in our love for God, but he has never slacked in his love for us.  Let's reevaluate our love life with God and respond accordingly.
