Let’S Choose An Attitude 1 6 2008 Let’S Choose An Attitude 1 6 2008 Presentation Transcript

  • LET’S CHOOSE AN ATTITUDE FOR THE NEW YEAR
  • Attitude is the key
    • to a happy,
    • fulfilled,
    • blessed life!
  • Jim Rohn says:
    • Attitude determines how much of the future we are allowed to see.
    • It decides the size of our dreams and influences our determination when we are faced with new challenges.
    • No other person on earth has dominion over our attitude.
  • Jim Rohn says:
    • People can affect our attitude by teaching us poor thinking habits or unintentionally misinforming us or providing us with negative sources of influence, but no one can control our attitude unless we voluntarily surrender that control.
  • Jim Rohn says:
    • If we want to receive the rewards the future holds in trust for us, then we must exercise the most important choice given to us as members of the human race by maintaining total dominion over our attitude.
  • Jim Rohn says:
    • Our attitude is an asset, a treasure of great value, which must be protected accordingly.
    • Beware of the vandals and thieves among us who would injure our positive attitude or seek to steal it away.
  • Privilege of Choosing
    • attitude!
  • What’s your attitude for 2008?
    • Positive?
    • Negative?
    • Neutral? (I really don’t care!)
  • Here’s a
    • thought:
    • Let’s choose Christ’s attitude!
  • Philippians 2:5
    • 5  Your attitude should be the same that Christ Jesus had.
  • Philippians 2:5-7
    • 5  Your attitude should be the same that Christ Jesus had.
    • 6  Though he was God, he did not demand and cling to his rights as God.
    • 7  He made himself nothing; he took the humble position of a slave and appeared in human form.
  • Philippians 2:1-4
    • 1  Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and sympathetic?
    • 2  Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one heart and purpose.
  • Philippians 2:1-4
    • 3  Don't be selfish; don't live to make a good impression on others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself.
    • 4  Don't think only about your own affairs, but be interested in others, too, and what they are doing.
  • Matthew 7:12
    • The Golden Rule
    • 12  "Do for others what you would like them to do for you. This is a summary of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.
  • Religious people …
    • “ religious stuff”!
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 1  Accept Christians who are weak in faith, and don't argue with them about what they think is right or wrong.
    • 2  For instance, one person believes it is all right to eat anything. But another believer who has a sensitive conscience will eat only vegetables.
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 3  Those who think it is all right to eat anything must not look down on those who won't. And those who won't eat certain foods must not condemn those who do, for God has accepted them.
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 4  Who are you to condemn God's servants? They are responsible to the Lord, so let him tell them whether they are right or wrong. The Lord's power will help them do as they should.
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 5  In the same way, some think one day is more holy than another day, while others think every day is alike. Each person should have a personal conviction about this matter.
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 6  Those who have a special day for worshiping the Lord are trying to honor him. Those who eat all kinds of food do so to honor the Lord, since they give thanks to God before eating. And those who won't eat everything also want to please the Lord and give thanks to God.
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 7  For we are not our own masters when we live or when we die.
    • 8  While we live, we live to please the Lord. And when we die, we go to be with the Lord. So in life and in death, we belong to the Lord.
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 9  Christ died and rose again for this very purpose, so that he might be Lord of those who are alive and of those who have died.
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 10  So why do you condemn another Christian? Why do you look down on another Christian? Remember, each of us will stand personally before the judgment seat of God.
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 11  For the Scriptures say, ”‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow to me and every tongue will confess allegiance to God.’”
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 12  Yes, each of us will have to give a personal account to God.
    • 13  So don't condemn each other anymore. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not put an obstacle in another Christian's path.
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 14  I know and am perfectly sure on the authority of the Lord Jesus that no food, in and of itself, is wrong to eat. But if someone believes it is wrong, then for that person it is wrong.
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 15  And if another Christian is distressed by what you eat, you are not acting in love if you eat it. Don't let your eating ruin someone for whom Christ died.
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 16  Then you will not be condemned for doing something you know is all right. 
    • 17  For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
  • Romans 14:1-19
    • 18  If you serve Christ with this attitude, you will please God. And other people will approve of you, too.
    • 19  So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up.
  • John 13:31-35
    • 31  As soon as Judas left the room, Jesus said, "The time has come for me, the Son of Man, to enter into my glory, and God will receive glory because of all that happens to me.
    • 32  And God will bring me into my glory very soon.
  • John 13:31-35
    • 33  Dear children, how brief are these moments before I must go away and leave you! Then, though you search for me, you cannot come to me—just as I told the Jewish leaders.
  • John 13:31-35
    • 34  So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.
    • 35  Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples."
  • What will your attitude be
    • in 2008
    • and beyond?
  • Let it be
    • “ Golden”!
  • Matthew 7:12
    • The Golden Rule
    • 12  "Do for others what you would like them to do for you. This is a summary of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.
