Let's Please God | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
January 1, 2012
The key to success in any endeavor, practical or spiritual, begins with the fundamentals. Pastor Allen submits that the fundamentals of being a Christ-follower begin with Kingdom initiation – purposefully and intentionally becoming a part of the Kingdom of God. The fundamentals continue with water baptism and progressively enter into a relationship with God’s Holy Spirit - knowing Him as we understand His voice, promptings, and His inclinations, in order to cooperate more fully with Him. Participating in God’s community of faith is another key fundamental that will help us grow into Christian maturity. The next component is stewardship – understanding God has entrusted us with time, talent, treasure, opportunities, and influence – and how we steward those opportunities is an expression of how we honor God. Once our foundation of fundamentals is in place, we can begin to practice becoming increasingly more like Jesus – building with the attitudes of forgiveness, perseverance, and a true desire to please God. Today, we want to be intentional and decide to please God and to live for His glory.
