  1. How Do I ApplyGod’s Truth In My Life? Truth is Practical! (Hebrews 4:12) "For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.“ Challenge: How do I change what the scriptures say into the way that I live?

  2. How Do I ApplyGod’s Truth in My Life? • A Good Heart • Luke 8:15; Matthew 23:25-26

  3. Luke 8:15 “But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.”

  4. Matthew 23:25-26 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. {26} Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also.”

  5. How Do I ApplyGod’s Truth in My Life? • A Good Heart • Luke 8:15; Matthew 23:25-26 • A Responsive Faith • Hebrews 11:6; Colossians 3:12-15

  6. Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

  7. Colossians 3:12-15 “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; {13} bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. {14} But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. {15} And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.”

  8. How Do I ApplyGod’s Truth in My Life? • A Good Heart • Luke 8:15; Matthew 23:25-26 • A Responsive Faith • Hebrews 11:6; Colossians 3:12-15 • Complete Commitment • Matthew 6:19-24; Romans 12:10-13

  9. Matthew 6:19-24 Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, not on earth… “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (vs. 21). “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” (vs. 24)

  10. Romans 12:10-13 “Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; {11} not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; {12} rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; {13} distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.”

  11. How Do I ApplyGod’s Truth in My Life? • A Good Heart • Luke 8:15; Matthew 23:25-26 • A Responsive Faith • Hebrews 11:6; Colossians 3:12-15 • Complete Commitment • Matthew 6:19-24; Romans 12:10-13 • Self-Examination Using God’s Word • 2 Corinthians 13:5; James 1:22-25

  12. 2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?; unless indeed you are disqualified.”

  13. James 1:22-25 “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. {23} For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; {24} for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. {25} But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.”

  14. Conclusion Without Christ in us,we can do nothing! “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:4-5)
