Selflessness

Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s wealth. 1 Corinthians 10:24 KJV

When your focus is to help others succeed, you can not help being successful.

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. Luke 6:38 KJV

Former President Ronald Reagan is said to have had a placard on his desk with a quote from Harry Truman that said, “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Philippians 2:3 KJV


Speaking

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV

Thoughts are “cast down” and silenced by speaking the Word of God.

Your racing mind can be reigned in with the bridle of your spoken words. The most effective words are the words of scripture spoken in faith believing.

Memorize verses and rehearse them over and over and find yourself with the well disciplined mind the Bible promises.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound [well disciplined] mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV


Mindful

The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron. Psalms 115:12 KJV

As the old song goes, “When He was on the Cross, I was on His mind”. Jesus has had you on His mind ever since. In fact, He prays for you continuously.

Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. Hebrews 7:25 KJV

Not only does the Lord have you on His mind but He will bless you and your household.


The Name

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12 KJV

There are names many that claim divine attributes. Allah, Moroni, Krishna, Bhudda, to mention a few. None have the sanction or endorsement of God Himself. It was only of Jesus that He gave His approval.

While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.  Matthew 17:5 KJV

And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.  And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:  And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Mark 1:9‭-‬11 KJV

God set the way of salvation solely in the Person of His Son Jesus.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.   For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.   He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16‭-‬18 KJV


Freedom


If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36 KJV

There’s healing, wholeness and joy in Jesus. Absolutely nothing is more fulfilling to the human heart than to have Jesus as Lord and Savior.
If you struggle with depression, low self esteem, stress, frustration, abuse or mental torment, you can find permanent relief in Christ Jesus. Religion won’t help but a relatioship with Him will.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.   Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Matthew 11:28‭-‬29 KJV

. . .  I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10 KJV


Righteous


For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Corinthians 5:21 KJV

The amazing truth of becoming born-again is that the believer is no longer alienated from God but has been (past tense, present indicative) made righteous (made to be in right standing with God) in Christ. Righteousness is a gift that we receive by faith.

For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)  Romans 5:17 KJV

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast.  Ephesians 2:8‭-‬9 KJV

Once you realize who you are in Christ, you will begin to live the holy life into which you have been immersed.


Results

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. James 1:22 KJV

Faith comes by hearing.

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 KJV

Results come by acting on what’s heard.

For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. James 2:26 KJV

The first action of faith is to say what you have received and believed.

Mark Hankins says, “Faith will not move anything until it moves you. The first part of you that your faith will move is your mouth!”

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Mark 11:23 KJV

The word “Whosoever” includes absolutely anyone, and everyone, that will speak the word of faith that they have heard and received in their hearts.

Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. Mark 9:23 KJV
