12 Life Lessons From Jesus

  1. 1. Life Lessons His lessons significantly impacted us in the spiritual area of our life. From Jesus
  2. 2. In this secular world many people tend to forget that we are a triune being – spirit, soul and body, and that we need to tend each area that constitutes our life in order to live a full, balanced and successful life. This is about real life lessons that can be applied to your life in an instant and you take them and apply them to your life immediately. Below are 12 powerful quotations from Christ Jesus :
  3. 3. Lesson # 1 : To Serve Is To Be Great Here is the secret to great leadership. Leadership is not about rulership. It is about serving others. And in giving to others you will never lack for any good thing in your life.
  4. 4. “Whoever wants to be great must become a servant.”
  5. 5. Lesson # 2 : There Is A Cure For Worry To live a worry free life is a joy. Anxiety is a killer. So to be able to face each day, knowing that if the world can exist in such beauty and splendor, there is nothing that you need to be concerned about. Take a fresh look at nature and get the point.
  6. 6. If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers, most of which are never even seen, don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving.”
  7. 7. Lesson # 3 : Love Conquers All When it comes to love we are given three directives: Love God. Love your neighbor. Love your enemies. The first step forward to develop this love in your life is to learn to pray. But what is prayer? Simply handing over life’s good and bad that we’re handed to one far greater than ourselves – and that even includes our enemies.
  8. 8. ‘Love your friend,’ and its unwritten companion, ‘Hate your enemy.’ I’m challenging that. I’m telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves.
  9. 9. Lesson # 4 : Follow The Golden Rule This is such a wonderful principle. Simply, do as you want to be done. Often the good turn won’t come back from the one you did it for – but it will come back from somewhere in this amazing universe that we live in.
  10. 10. “Here is a simple, rule-of-thumb guide for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then grab the initiative and do it for them.”
  11. 11. Lesson # 5 : Ask For What You Need Ask. In sales I learnt very quickly that if I never asked for the sale I would never get the sale. The power is in the asking. Now I’m not saying that you are going to pull a sales strategy on God. But ask, and in your asking expect to receive. When my children ask me for something, as their father I cannot resist the pull that it invokes on my fatherly heartstrings to give them the best that I have to offer.
  12. 12. “Here’s what I’m saying: Ask and you’ll get; Seek and you’ll find; Knock and the door will open. Don’t bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This is not a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we’re in.”
  13. 13. Lesson # 6 : Judge Not Point one finger in the direction of another in judgment and you have three pointing straight back at you. Not good. Resist the slippery slide towards judging others.
  14. 14. Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, and criticize their faults— unless, of course, you want the same treatment. That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging.
  15. 15. Lesson # 7 : Keep Your Word If you can say yes. If you can’t say no. Don’t muck about by telling a lie when you know that you cannot do what you have promised. The word ‘no’ can be your most liberating friend if used wisely. You can’t do everything, so start practicing the use of it. And if you say ‘yes’ ensure that you do what you say – even if it is inconvenient. This builds a depth of character in your being and trust from those around you.
  16. 16. “Just say ‘yes’ and ‘no.’ When you manipulate words to get your own way, you go wrong.”
  17. 17. Lesson # 8 : Give In Secret There is nothing worse than someone blowing their own trumpet. Practice the art of giving in secret. Your reward will be great.
  18. 18. “When you help someone out, don’t think about how it looks. Just do it quietly and unobtrusively.”
  19. 19. Lesson # 9 : Forgive Others To forgive others is to free you from the disabling chains of unforgiveness. Sorry is sometimes the hardest word to say, but once said it is liberating. Don’t wait for others to apologize. You lead the way and be the first to offer the hand of forgiveness. This is not about wrong or right, but rather living a life of freedom.
  20. 20. “In prayer there is a connection between what God does and what you do. You can’t get forgiveness from God, for instance, without also forgiving others. If you refuse to do your part, you cut yourself off from God’s part.”
  21. 21. Lesson # 10 : Speak Good Words Death and life are in the power of the tongue, so use words wisely. Put a watch over your mouth and analyze the words that leave your lips. Are they positive? Or are they tinged with negativity and judgement? This is serious business, so pay heed to the advice given. It is truly the difference between salvation and damnation – here on earth – let alone throughout eternity.
  22. 22. Words are powerful; take them seriously. Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation.
  23. 23. Lesson # 11 : Nothing Is Impossible If You Have Faith Faith is a small word, but a powerful one at that. Faith is trust in a greater one than yourself, trust in the abilities that have been placed within you, and trust that with every step forward you will find your way towards your dreams and your goals. With a sprinkling of persistence added to the formula you can do but one thing – win!
  24. 24. “The simple truth is that if you had a mere kernel of faith, a poppy seed, say, you would tell this mountain, ‘Move!’ and it would move. There is nothing you wouldn’t be able to tackle.”
  25. 25. Lesson # 12 : Use It Or Lose It Whatever you do, don’t compare yourself with the others. Use the one that you have and develop it. These represent your personal strengths, and like any muscle, the best way to develop a strength in your life is by strengthening it. So at every opportunity use it – and that way you will never lose it. You will in fact enhance it and position yourself to become a leader in your chosen field of endeavor.
  26. 26. It’s criminal to live cautiously like that! If you knew I was after the best, why did you do less than the least? The least you could have done would have been to invest the sum with the bankers, where at least I would have gotten a little interest. Take the thousand and give it to the one who risked the most. And get rid of this ‘play-it-safe’ who won’t go out on a limb. Throw him out into utter darkness.
  27. 27. These are the ways to make your dream life a reality. All that is needed is some positive energy to attract those things that you desire into your life. To learn one must be taught. To teach one must first learn. Follow His lessons, and you will be happy in your life!!!
