Singleminded Faith – June 3, 2007

“Singleminded Faith”

Text: I Kings 18:20-39; James 1:2-8, 22-27; Luke 7:1-10; Romans 7:19

Even when we know what we ought to do…even when we want to do what we ought to do, we often find ourselves doing exactly the opposite. We want to surrender control to God, but we find ourselves often trying to take it back. We leave our burdens at the altar of prayer, only to pick them back up again when we rise. However, when we seek to be in tune with God’s Spirit, and allow Him to purify our hearts, we find that are better able to “will one thing,” and be singleminded in our devotion to God.
