Transformed Episode #197: Building a Heart of Love for God!

Date April 13, 2014

God Created You to Love You 2014

God’s love, once truly experienced, draws us back to His side time and time again!

Welcome to the transformed podcast. 

Such a friendship is built one day at a time and deepened month after month and year after year. As we look at some of the distinguishing characteristics of a heart for God, we realize that what we do can multiply our experience with God incredibly!

As Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, lead Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, California opens Deuteronomy 10 today, he reminds us love can be seen!

Would You Like to Help Spread the Word?

Perhaps you would you consider sharing this message with a friend? God longs to release the captives of our culture into the freedom of faith. Thank you for your consideration!

If you would like to explore how you can experience the love of God in a deeper, more real way, Dr. Smith has written a book to take you to the next level!

In His Image explores God’s great love for humanity from every book of the Bible. From the creation of Genesis to the culmination in Revelation, God’s love shines through every page. Never is this ever clearer than in the times of Israel’s great betrayal of their God. His passionate pursuit of His children can be heard dripping from his voice as He calls them (and us by proxy) back to His shelter and protection.

This book was written …

  • To convince the reader of God’s intense and immense love for them;
  • To encourage the reader to reach out to the God who is passionately in love with them;
  • To strengthen the reader’s faith in God’s compassion; and
  • To motivate the reader to share the love of God with every person they meet.

It is very clear God loves people of all races and ethnicities. Therefore, whenever appropriate to the passage of the day, emphasis is made on the issue of racial reconciliation around God’s love. His love becomes the motivation for evangelism and for community. In each daily devotional …

There is a Biblical Scripture they are encouraged to read;

There is a passage of Scripture to read in the devotional itself;

There is the devotional to read which focuses the reader on a single thought, broken into two, three or four practical ideas they can utilize that day in their lives; and

There is a thought to take with the reader each day which summarizes the theme concerning God’s great love for them.

You can order your copy In His Image at the Eagles In Leadership website by clicking the appropriate link on the right hand side panel of the Eagles In Leadership website.

Today’s episode was recorded live in El Segundo, California and edited by Ryan Longsworth in Los Angeles, California.

And now, until next time, we are praying you would be filled with the love of God so that you can demonstrate His love to the lost and dying in your city! God bless!
