Summary: Sermon Series I preach when our Church went through Rick Warren's C.L.A.S.S. Christian Life And Service Seminars Thanks to Rick Warren for the Foundation of this Sermon Series
Ephesians 4:14-15 “Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.” (NLT)
The Kind of Person God Uses:
1. The one who desires God’s will in everything!
Matthew 6:33 “Seek first God’s kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well.” (NCV)
Question: What are you seeking after?
2. The one who is willing to pay any price for the Lord’s will!
2 Timothy 2:3-4 “Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.” (NASB)
Question: Is there anything between you and God?
The faithful person is willing to pay any price to have the will of God accomplished in his life.
3. The one who has a love for the Word of God!
Jeremiah 15:16 “When I discovered your words, I devoured them. They are my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, O LORD God of Heaven’s Armies.” (NLT)
Question: Is your craving for the Bible so great that it is never satisfied?
4. The one who has a Servants Heart!
