Self Respect

  1. 1. Self Respect You, yourself and ya’ll
  2. 2. Self Esteem • What is self esteem? • Do you think it’s important to have? Why? • Self esteem is to have confidence in yourself. It is very centered on you. • Is that a good thing?
  3. 3. Self Respect • What is self respect then? • What is the difference between self esteem and self respect? • Esteem is the power that drives, respect is what discerns how that power is used. • Respect yourself and your body. • Your body is the temple of God take care of it!
  4. 4. Self Image • Genesis 1:26-27 • Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
  5. 5. I Look Like God? • Don’t be flattered, most of the time in the Bible are afraid to see God’s face, or drop dead when they do! Ouch! • No seriously though, he has elevated us to be like him with the authority to get things done. • You have a relationship with the Living God!
  6. 6. From Rags to Riches • You need to accept the fact that God did not make you in the image of an animal. • Don’t settle for merely living out your fleshly desires, scrounging for food, etc. • He has made you in the image of himself! • You are not peasants, but royalty! • You have the capacity to have a relationship with the divine. Put on your robe!
  7. 7. Romans 8:35-39 • Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
  8. 8. God’s Love for Us • God loves us. Plain and simple. • There is nothing we can do that can stop Him from loving us. • He is jealous for us. • We can't run from this kind of love.
  9. 9. Self Love • You need toyou areto terms with God’s realize that come the object of that and affection. • See this book? The Bible? • It’s a love letter written to you! • To love yourself, to forgiveneed to be willing to accept God’s love you yourself and to open yourself up to that forgiveness.
  10. 10. Self Strength • Phillipians 4:12-13 • I know what it is to be in need and, • I know what it is to have plenty. • I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. • I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
  11. 11. Too much of a good thing... • Too much self esteem is bad. • We get big egos and need to get “knocked down a few pegs”. • This is bad. • We need to keep our esteem in check. • It can be easily used for good or evil.
  12. 12. Constant Strength • Slow and steady wins the race • It is better to have a constant strength than a short, fragile one. • Proverbs 11:2 • When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
  13. 13. Phillipians 2:1-3 • If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, • if any comfort from his love, • if any fellowship with the Spirit, • if any tenderness and compassion, • then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.
  14. 14. Phillipians 2:1-3 • Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, • but in humility consider others better than yourselves. • Each of you should look not only to your own interests, • but also to the interests of others.
  15. 15. Charge your Batteries • Though it is good have self esteem, we need to be careful not live solely for our self! • When you talk on your cellphone for a week straight without plugging it in, what happens? • The battery dies. • Cars can run out of gas. Then what? • They are worthless!
  16. 16. Keep Plugging In • Keep yourself self respect, image, and strength in God. • You got to plug in once in a while! • If you didn't eat you would... die. • Plug into God, the power plant... • Make sure you are always near an outlet!
  17. 17. Peanut Butter Jelly Time! • Bread of Life - John 6:35 • Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.”
  18. 18. John 15:1-8 • I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. • This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. • Spread that fruit around!
  19. 19. Peanut Butter? • Peanut Butter is not a parable in the Bible. • It provides sustenance. • It counters the sweet jelly? Why? • It’s salty. • Makes it yummy, you to crave for more. • Without What's the perfectjust empty calories. it the sandwich is blend?
  20. 20. Self Respect Flows Outward • Colossians 4:5-6 • Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; • make the most of every opportunity. • Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. • Peanut butter is that salty sustenance that keeps others coming back for more
