Awakening the Heart
Awakened hearts are key to engaging God-designed energy in Kingdom expansion. Satan’s strategy, therefore, is to keep the hearts of believers numb or asleep.
Tim Keller, in his article “Preaching that Cuts to the Heart” says, “Remember that according to the Bible, the heart is not primarily the emotions but rather the seat of our fundamental commitments and trusts, and therefore it is the control center of the whole life. So to preach to the heart means to go right for the commanding commitments of people’s lives that drive their desires, thinking, feeling and action.”
In this phase we focus on the thinking, feeling, desires and choices of the heart through teaching, coaching, personal and community engagement within the context of reflection on the Word of God.
