We are coming to the close of our teaching series on Wholeheartedness. We’ve considered the idea of “wholeheartedness” through Jesus’ understanding of the greatest commandment, found in Matthew: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…..and…. Love your neighbor as yourself.’’
The reality is that every bit of scripture we’ve been reflecting on, and in fact, the overall story of the bible, is cast in light of God’s redemptive work in all creation. He desires for all creation to be wholehearted in Christ “and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. ” – Colossians 1:20. His redeeming work in your life and mine isn’t simply about us. It’s all about the beautiful work of God. It’s all about the gospel.
