    The GODLY Character
    -the real you-:-)

    Romans 5:3-4
    3 More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,
    4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,

    Character
    - the way someone thinks, feels & behaves: someone's personality

    Greek word: Dokime
    Translation: experience

    You have been shaped by your experiences
    - Rick Warren

    1. Our Personal Experience with GOD
    Luke 15:17-18
    17 "But when he came to himself, he said, 'How many of my father's hired servants have more than enough bread, but I perish here with hunger!
    18 I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you.
    19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants."'
    20 And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.

    2. Our Personal Experience of Ups & Downs
    Philippians 4:11-12
    11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.
    12 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need.

    Philippians 4:13
    I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

    God uses the most to prepare and mold you, are your painful experiences
    - Rick Warren

    2 Corinthians 12:8
    8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me.
    9 But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
    10 For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

    3. Our Personal Experience of Having Companions in our Journey
    1 Corinthians 15:33
    Do not be deceived: "Bad company ruins good morals."

    4. Our Personal Experience of Knowing our True Purpose

    We have a long continouos molding of character in our journey

    Romans 8:28
    And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

    All hurtful moments in your journey will prepare you for greater things in this life

    He wants you to be the real you!
