Here are the sermon notes from this past Sunday, June 19th.  It was Father's Day and there are some appropriate applications for dads in the sermon.  Most of all, I hoped to remind our congregation that purity of heart only comes from Jesus Himself.  As always, you can find these notes in PDF and the sermon audio on the website (  You can also find the sermon audio on iTunes via our podcast.

Taking Aim at Purity
Part 1 – 2 Timothy 2.22

Purity:  cleanliness of heart.

Defining the Heart:  the core of the self.
  • It is the place from which you speak and act. 
  • It is marred by sin and cleansed by Jesus.
  • This cleansing cannot be achieved from an outside source.
  • It is the target of Jesus’ redemptive work. 

Cleansing the Heart
  • It is not a work of ours but a work of grace (v.25).
  • It is coupled with our repentance – rethinking our thinking about my heart.
  • It leads to Truth which liberates us from our Enemy.
