HEARING FROM GOD A SIGN OF CHRISTIAN MATURITY (PART 4)

TEXT: REVELATION 3:6; 1 SAMUEL 3:1-10

 INTRODUCTION

The expectation of God towards every believer is to grow and mature.  No earthly father or mother is happy when their child is growing in age but not growing mentally. However, the most important need of any child of God is the ability to hear from God. When you begin to hear from God, progress begins in your life. It is a great period in your life the day you learn to hear God’s voice clearly, plainly and on daily basis.
