Your Walk (3 of 6)
Series: BACK TO BASICS
Dr. Chuck McAlister
(A) Series .... BACK TO BASICS !
1- Basics of spiritual growth .... What happens right after salvation.
2- Looking together at the 6 elements involved in spiritual growth -- the 6 basic building blocks of the Christian life.
....You never grow beyond these 6 elements .... you grow in them .... Thus far, we've seen:
a- YOUR WORSHIP .... the moment you are saved, God creates within you a thirst to glorify Him .... to repeatedly experience His presence ....
.... Acting on that thirst .... by worshiping God .... starts you growing spiritually.
.... It also compels you to move into the 2nd element of your spiritual growth: b- YOUR WITNESS .... Genuine worship will compel you to tell others about Jesus.

.... The moment you are saved .... not only does God create a thirst within you to worship Him, but He also creates within you a desire to obey Him.
.... Your daily life becomes one of obedience .... You may blow it at times .... but your desire is to obey God.
