Christlike Mindset             

Philippians 2 5

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 2:5

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus

 

In everything you do and as you interact with people, follow the example of Jesus Christ.  Before you speak, before you act, ask yourself how Jesus would handle the situation. In the 90s the phrase “What Would Jesus Do?” (WWJD) became popular as a reminder to follow the example of Jesus. The Bible tells us that Jesus was humble, obedient, patient, giving, forgiving, loved God and all people. Live your life in such a way that others will see Jesus in you.

Love and Obedience

John 14 23

 

Verse of the Day:  John 14:23

Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.”

 

If you really love Jesus, you will obey His teachings.  Saying you love Him is easy, anyone can say they love Jesus, proving you do is another matter. When you understand and appreciate what Jesus did for you at the cross it changes you, you’re no longer the same.  True love and gratitude responds in obedience, dedication and with passion.

Spiritual wisdom comes from God and it gives you the ability to live a life that is obedient to Him no matter what trials you face.  Consistently seek God’s wisdom by reading the Bible and through prayer and you will begin to see the changes in yourself and in your life.

A Teachable Spirit

Psalm 143 10

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 143:10

Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God.  May Your gracious Spirit lead me on level ground.

God loves us so much that He gave us commands to obey that lead us towards His goodness and mercy and away from a path that leads to destruction.  Having a teachable spirit will put us in a position to be led by God.

Obedience Brings Blessings

Psalm 128 1-2.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalms 128:1-2

Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.  You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.

 

Prosperity and blessings come from God.  Reverence to the Lord and obedience to His Word are the keys to being blessed and prosperous.  God wants you to enjoy the fruits of your labor, to be blessed and prosperous!

Humility is Understanding Your Value

Ephesians 4 2

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 4:2

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

 

Live a less self-centered life by focusing more on God and by being kind and gentle to others.  Humility doesn’t mean you’re vulnerable, it’s actually the opposite.  It’s knowing your strengths and your weaknesses while understanding your value. It’s being so strong in your faith that you are obedient to God’s Word no matter the circumstances.

God is Holy

1 Peter 1 15-16.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 1:15-16

But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”

 

God is holy and He is calling you to be holy.  Before you knew God you didn’t know any better, but now that you know God, He expects more from you. God wants you to be obedient and live according to His will in every aspect of your life.  He expects you to be holy, but don’t worry if you fall, He is also forgiving.
