When Building A Spiritual Rusume

June 16, 2019 Pastor: Bryan Glisson Series: Flourish

Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 1:8–1:10

Definition of Flourish: to be healthy and thriving; to blossom; to be at the height of influence

Introduction: When you become a follower of Jesus Christ, it becomes obvious to those around you. (I Thessalonians 1:8-9a) This means that from the moment you are saved you begin to build a testimony; which then becomes your spiritual resume.

Definition of Testimony:  supporting evidence; proof

Conclusions Concerning Your Testimony:

  • It is the means to how others view you  (Proverbs 22:1)
  • It is the guide to how others respond to you
  • It can either render you powerful or powerless
  • It is the only thing that truly survives you

Your Testimony Is Built By:

  • How you handle your problems
  • What you do with your potential
  • What you set as priorities

A Spiritual Resume Is A Testimony Of Someone:

Who Is Converted In the Past  (I Thessalonians 1:9b)

--turns to God from sin (idols) - (Philippians 1:6) (Jeremiah 29:11) (Acts 26:18)

Who Is Captivated In The Present  (I Thessalonians 1:9c)

--from serving sin to serving God  (Colossians 3:23-24)

Who Is Committed To The Future  (I Thessalonians 1:10)

--to Jesus from wrath

Application: What is in your spiritual resume? Does it contain evidence or proof that you are a follower of Christ? Do others see this proof or evidence?
