Daniel 1:8. Most Christians aren’t experiencing God’s best. Why is that? Well it’s not because God doesn’t want to give it. It’s because we have allowed certain factors to seduce our soul and infect our belief system with lies. These lies have you thinking you’re moving forward on the right path to get the best out of life, but in the end, we’re not. There is another pathway that God offers. That path will seem very hard on the front end. But if you follow it with His help and by His grace, you’ll receive His best. The greatest picture of this is found in the Old Testament in the life a teenage boy. Well, at least he’s a teenager when we first hear about him. His name is Daniel.
Living a God Pleasing Life: What makes God happy? The Bible says that, “God rewards those who diligently seek him.” Hebrews 11:6. What does it mean to “diligently seek Him” and are there ways that we can do that, that are more effective than others? What many Christians sadly misunderstand is that God isn’t into religious activities or performance-based Christianity. O.K., so what then does God really want from us? In this sermon series Pastor Barry will answer that question by looking at Biblical Characters whose lives were pleasing to God.
