KEY SCRIPTURE: Eph 2:10 KJV” For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them”.
NO dog struggles to bark. We as Christians have been designed or endued with the ability for good works. It is in our nature to do good. We are made of the same substance of our Lord. John 15:1, reveals that we are the branches and the Lord is the vine. The branch is made of the same substance as the vine. The spirit of Christ is a sweet Spirit. The first thing to do to manifest a sweet spirit as a child of God, is to accept that you have a sweet spirit. Your past experiences might have been very painful or created certain bad attitudes in you. If you have made Jesus Lord of your life, then the past is no more. Refuse to accept you are a bitter person or you have a bad character. Your spirit is the Spirit of Christ and that is the real you.
Secondly tell yourself always that you have a sweet spirit. One strong way to train your spirit is to speak in line with what you want your actions to be. Your attitude and actions towards people are directly related to the words you talk about them. Decide never to use your tongue to speak evil about others. Never comment on issues of others that you have no knowledge about. Col 4:6 KJV” Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man”. Don’t compromise with wrong, but always speak the truth in love. Tell people the truth, not with a motive to condemn them, but to see a transformation in their actions.
WORDS are not just sounds with an intention but, they are real substances. They have the ability to create, heal, lift up, cast down, defame or destroy. Always make your words heal, unite, lift up, encourage and bless as well.
Build a sound relationship with the Lord. One’s ability to be genuinely selfless comes from his knowledge of God and a subsequent surrender of his will to Him. David could not be bitter against king Saul’s evil pursuit of his life because he knew the Lord and had surrendered his life unto Him. Please consider your role in people’s life as God’s assignment and do it diligently
I proceed from God. I am recreated in Christ Jesus unto good works. It is my nature to do good to God’s glory. My words lift up, heal, and bless the depressed. I am taking the Lord place in this life.
1 Peter 2:22 & 23 KJV “Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:”
James 3:17 & 18 KJV. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
