Heart For The House – 11.25.18 – Peter Haas

11-25-18   “Hitting the Right Target” – There is nothing more fulfilling than being in sync with heaven. Yet, it’s easy to get out of sync with God’s priorities. And one of the chief symptoms of this inalignment is constantly begging God for his provision. After all, provision always flows in abundance from good priorities. So, how do we know if we’re in sync with heaven? Simply look at the measure of your evangelism. (Luke 15; Mt. 25).
