Main Points of Jimmy’s Sermon:

  • What God Asks
  • How We Respond
  • What God Provides


  • What is it that God asks of you today?
  • What do you think God owes you?
  • How does Deuteronomy 9 address the previous question?
  • What condition do you put on your love towards God?
  • Where does emotion enter into your definition of loving God/Jesus?
  • Interact with Jimmy’s assertion that biblical love is self-sacrifice and deals with the center/motive of the person.  How does this gel with the view of love as passion?
  • Where is your stubborn self-centeredness covering your self-sacrificial love?


  • Read The Joy of Fearing God by Jerry Bridges
  • Think back on 2012, list all of the things that God has provided for you and your family.
  • If you journal, look back and notice ways that God provided for you physically, emotionally and spiritually.
