Attitudes Pt 2
ASPECT MEANS; A PART OF, OR FEATURE OF SOMETHING.
A SPECIFIC WAY IN WHICH SOMETHING CAN BE CONSIDERED.
“ATTITUDES ARE ALL OF YOUR THOUGHTS PUT TOGETHER AND REFLECTING YOUR STATE OF MIND”
Viktor Frankl “The greatest of all human freedoms is the ability to choose one’s attitude regardless of circumstances”
YOUR ATTITUDE HAS A WHOLE LOT TO DO WITH YOUR FUTURE
1. THE ATTITUDE OF A SERVANT
Phil 2:17 But even if I am being poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice and share my joy with you all.
THE ATTITUDE OF A SERVANT FIRST OF ALL UNDERSTANDS MY LIFE IS NOT MY OWN.
2. THE ATTITUDE OF PRODUCTIVITY (FAITHFULNESS)
Prov 28:20 “The faithful shall abound with blessings”
Matt 25 – PARABLE OF THE TALENTS
TO FOLLOW THE PATTERN OF CHRIST MEANS YOU WILL BE PRODUCTIVE.
3. A WINNING ATTITUDE
PAUL DESCRIBES THE LIFE OF THE REDEEMED AS BEING LIKE A VICTORIOUS SOLDIER, A WINNING ATHLETE, A SUCCESSFUL FARMER, A DILIGENT STUDENT, AND A USEABLE VESSEL (2 Tim 2)
2 Cor 2:14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ
4. ATTITUDE OF THANKFULNESS
1 Thess 5:18 in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS UNEXPRESSED THANKS!
GRATITUDE WILL SPILL OVER IN YOUR GIVING
GIVING WILL AFFECT YOUR SUPPLY! GRACE…
5. ATTITUDE OF FAITH
Heb 11:6 “Without faith it is impossible to please God”
YOUR FAITH MAKES UNLIMITED POSSIBLITIES AVAILABLE
FAITH MAKES YOU CONCIOUS OF ETERNAL THINGS…
2 Cor 4:13 “But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed, therefore I spoke,” we also believe, therefore we also speak”
