Don't Waste Your Life: The Greatness of Trusting God Phil 3:1-14
One Truth: God wants to raise up men and women in His church whose lives COUNT for His glory on the landscape of human history.
Four Characteristics of Lives That Count. . . . .
• They TREASURE Christ above everything this world has to offer. >The many treasures of the wasted life: FAMILY heritage. SOCIAL status. BIBLICAL knowledge. RELIGIOUS activity. A MORAL lifestyle. >Only treasure of life that counts: CHRIST. >We have found something worth LOSING everything for.
• They TRUST in Christ to provide everything they could ever need.
>His righteousness covers our SIN.
>His power guarantees our RESURRECTION.
>His satisfaction transcends our SUFFERING.
>God delights in showing His greatness THROUGH those who trust in Him.
