 ATTITUDE

by

Charles Swindoll – Adapted from http://www.insight.org

 “The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude, to me, is more important than facts.  It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think, say or do.  It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill.  It will make or break a company… a church… a home.  The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for that day.  We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.  We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we can do is play the one string we have, and that is our attitude… I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes”

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Ruth 3: 18 – Sit still; Psalms 46 – Be still – To see the glory of God

Dear all,

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

  1. Then she said, “Wait, my daughter, until you know how the matter turns out; for the man will not rest until he has settled it today.”

  1. “Cease strivingand know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Thought:

Let us understand the Word of God and apply it in our day-to-day life in every dimension. In addition, let us share the love of Christ Jesus to as many people as we can. Who knows? Ruth 3: 2 says “And it happened”. In our LORD’S Sovereign plan He decided to bring Ruth as “Mother of Kings” and our LORD Jesus when he came to this world, he came as a descendant of Ruth (Matthew 1: 5). We should never under estimate the resurrected power of Christ Jesus in us.

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Prayer – Two Way Communication with God

Dear all,

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2

Word:

16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hebrews+4%3A16&version=NASB

Thought:

Prayer is our humble approach to God, and we are to come “boldly.” In addition, come with reverence because he is our King. Are we prayerful and empowered by the power of Holy Spirit?

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Made Alive In Christ Jesus

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Made Alive In Christ Jesus: Ephesians 2: 1-10

Word: For by grace you have been saved through faith; and [h]that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. (Verses 8 – 10).

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+2%3A1-10&version=NASB

Thought:  The advantages of new life through our LORD Jesus Christ are in multiple folds. For example, we can live under an open heaven. Living under an open heaven means we are God’s children and our day-to-day life will be totally transformed by Christ’s resurrection power for His glory. A transformed life is an effective witness to the power of God’s Word. It is not based on the righteous works we do, but only by His grace.

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

A Portrait of the Christian Life

Dear all,

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

A Portrait of the Christian Life

The Incomparable Christ: For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1: 13 – 14

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Colossians%201&version=NASB

Thoughts: Benefits God offers to all believers through Christ Jesus:

  1. God has rescued his people from Satan’s kingdom of darkness and made us his children.
  2. God has brought us into his eternal kingdom.
  3. God has purchased our freedom from sin and judgment with his blood.
  4. God has forgiven all our sins.

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Be Strong in the LORD and in His Mighty Power

Dear all,

Be strong in the LORD and in his mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10 – 20

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+6%3A10-20&version=NASB

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.

In our spiritual battle we face a powerful army that has well-organized strategies to defeat Christ’s church at any cost. Although, at the end we are assured victory in Christ, now we must engage in the struggle until Christ returns. “Take courage” in God’s strength to withstand and to overcome enemy’s every evil action. In James 4: 7, Bible says “Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you”.

Be Strong in the LORD

Dear all,

Be strong in the LORD and in his mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10 – 20

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+6%3A10-20&version=NASB

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.

Sometimes it is useful to read an author’s commentary (a series of explanatory notes on a text) on the scripture.

John Wesley — https://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/wesleys-explanatory-notes/ephesians/ephesians-6.html

John Gill — https://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/gills-exposition-of-the-bible/ephesians-6/

Thought:

Knowing God in a personal way through Christ Jesus and also his eternal purpose for us will help us to be victorious through difficult times. Satan may attack a believer either directly or indirectly through deception. To identify and overcome the traps of the devil in our faith journey in Christ, we need to apply the Word of God in every dimension to stop the devil’s evil actions.
