An Understanding Heart, Part 1 of 2 (When Jesus Has Your Heart)

April 28, 2022

When circumstances bring sorrow to our hearts, we often feel helpless. But our story isn’t done yet. While many gladly anticipated Jesus’ death, His disciples were saddened when Jesus predicted the cross. In this message, we receive the same encouragement for us which Jesus offered His disciples. By reading the “last page” of our story, we see God’s ability to turn sorrow into joy.

Christians, Politics, And The Cross
We are living in a time when we desperately need to engage our culture with the only message that has any hope of transforming it. As Pastor Lutzer explores various approaches to the relationship between the state and the church, he reminds us that spiritual redemption, not political reformation, is at the heart of God’s agenda. Only the church, not a political party, can bear God’s message to a hurting world. Click below to receive this book for a gift of any amount or call Moody Church Media at 1.800.215.5001.

Many people are not interested in Christianity at all. They are totally turned off by some Christians. In fact, it’s impossible for anyone to come to Christ apart from the Holy Spirit drawing them. In this message, we discuss our vital relationship with the Holy Spirit. Are you resisting or cooperating with the Spirit’s promptings?

We all grow up believing lies about ourselves and about God. There’s one sin, one standard, and one danger that we must all face. In this message, we discover how the Spirit of God uncovers the truth and exposes the lies we might believe. Even today, He’s working in and through believers to convict the world of sin and reveal the truth.

We might hope for smooth relationships, jobs, or social lives. But Christians can expect to be misunderstood for their faith in Jesus Christ. In this message, we hear Christ’s instructions on how to handle misunderstanding or hatred when it comes our way. How can we stand against the world’s system while loving the world’s people?

We all have experienced naysayers or even outright enemies. But for believers, we can expect to be persecuted because of our relationship to Christ. The better the world understands Christ, the more they will hate Him. In this message, we face the reactions as well as the reasons Christians face persecution. How should we respond when we’re attacked for believing in Jesus?

Every one of us wants to be truly known—and still fully loved. We all desire those kinds of human friendships. But the One who lives this best is Jesus. In this message from the Upper Room, we learn three facts from Jesus: the badge, the reward, and the result of friendship. Let’s learn how to find such a friend in Jesus and to be that kind of friend.

We all need true friends, even those of us who feel burned or guarded in our relationships. Jesus told us how love is manifested—that a man lay down his life for his friends. In this message, we find three facts from Jesus about friendship and sacrifice. Is this the kind of love manifested in our own lives?

We are frequently presented with competing perspectives about Jesus. Some think of Him as a teacher or a revolutionary, avoiding Him as they go on with their lives. In this message, we glimpse the true characteristics of this Jesus from the apostle John’s vision in Revelation. Are you prepared to meet the real Jesus, the Keeper of the keys?

After Jesus had died, two disciples walked away from Jerusalem thinking all their hopes had died with Him—until a mysterious stranger met them on the road. Their hearts were strangely warmed through the conversation. At dinner, they found themselves face to face with the One they loved. When we face troubles, we can know that Jesus has not left us.

The pain and disappointment had hit home. When Jesus died, His disciples’ dreams died. Their best-laid plans were in ruins. Was it best to move on and forget those three wonderful years with Christ? In this message, we learn how the resurrected Jesus revived their dreams, and how He can revive ours. Our living hope is stronger than our shattered dreams.

What do you want your epitaph to say? We all want to live a good life and contribute to others. For believers, we don’t measure the fruitfulness of our lives based on worldly success. In this message, we explore the portrait of the believer’s relationship to Jesus as a branch connected to the vine. Let’s discover the lasting fruit of abiding in Christ.
