ASPECT MEANS; A PART OF, OR FEATURE OF SOMETHING.
A SPECIFIC WAY IN WHICH SOMETHING CAN BE CONSIDERED.
AN OVERLOOKED ASPECT OF ABUNDANCE IS YOUR ATTITUDE
Viktor Frankl “The greatest of all human freedoms is the ability to choose one’s attitude regardless of circumstances”
Heb 6:10 For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints.
IF YOU DON’T HAVE A GOOD WORK ETHINC YOU CAN’T REALLY BE AFFECTIVE IN LIFE OR MINISTRY
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.
Philippians 2 JESUS HUMBLED HIMSELF TO BECOME A SERVANT.
THE ATTITUDE OF A SERVANT FIRST OF ALL UNDERSTANDS MY LIFE IS NOT MY OWN.
YOU LOOSE YOUR LIFE BY SERVING AND BEING A BLESSING TO THE BODY OF CHRIST.
PHIL 2:3 SAY’S TO “Esteem others better than yourself”
TO BE A GOOD SERVANT YOU NEED TO BE TRAINED OR TRAIN YOURSELF TO SEE WHAT OTHERS DON’T SEE.
HOW CAN I MAKE LIFE EASIER FOR SOMEONE OR BETTER FOR SOMEONE ELSE
TO HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF A SERVANT YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH YOURSELF.
1 Pet 5 To not serve by compulsion but willingly…
Is 1:19 “If you are willing and obedient you will eat the good of the land”
2. THE ATTITUDE OF PRODUCTIVITY
Prov 28:20 “The faithful shall abound with blessings”
Matt 25 – PARABLE OF THE TALENTS
YOU’LL NEVER REALLY HAVE THE JOY OF THE LORD UNTIL YOU ARE PRODUCTIVE IN LIFE…
YOUR ABUNDANCE IS CONNECTED TO YOUR WILLINGNESS TO TAKE THE 5, 2 OR 1 AND BE PRODUCTIVE WITH WHAT YOU HAVE.
TO FOLLOW THE PATTERN OF CHRIST MEANS YOU WILL BE PRODUCTIVE.
A LOT OF OUR PROBLEMS COME FROM “ME, MYSELF AND I”
Gal 2:20 – OUR LIFE CENTERS AROUND CHRIST, NOT “I”
