Do you desire to have an attitude like Christ? 

Do you desire to have an attitude like Christ? What does your current attitude reflect? Keep a close eye on your attitude. Ask yourself if your attitude is the same as that of Jesus throughout the day. If it’s not, pray about it and decide to change it! Have a wonderful day as you remain in His presence. Love you all. 


“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 15:5-6

 

The Bible tells us that our attitude should be the same as that of Jesus. I think we all fall short of that every single day. Jesus’ attitude was amazing. He always loved, always forgave, and He always put others first. We on the other hand at times tend to be selfish, putting ourselves first, and while we try to love, at times it is a selfish love. We sometimes get angry when things don’t go our way. Or when we don’t get to do what we want, we sometimes get a bad attitude. When people put us down we don’t always remember to pray for them as Jesus did for His betrayers as He was hanging on the cross.

 

While we always seem to fall short, we can take heart in the fact that God has promised to continue to work in us until the end (Philippians 1:6). We are not perfect today nor will we be perfect tomorrow, but as believers we have the Holy Spirit working in us and each day we are drawing closer to being more like Jesus. Our attitude will be transformed by reading God’s Word, and having the desire to be more like Christ. We will learn that our attitude reflects either our own sinful nature or it can reflect the Holy Spirit living in us. I pray that it is the latter more than the first, but even if it isn’t, we have God’s promise that He isn’t done with us yet.

 

Father God, thank you for sending Jesus Christ as our perfect example how to live. Thank you for forgiving us when we fall short, and thank you for the reminder that You will continue to work in us until You bring us home. Please forgive me for being so selfish. Help me to be more like your Son, Jesus Christ. Help my attitude be transformed into the likeness of His. In Jesus precious name I pray. Amen and Amen.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!

  1. GREAT post!

    It seems to me the key WORD here is “always”

    Sometimes we do & sometimes we don’t

    I need to work on that

    Thanks!

    Blessings
