Blog Message, Part 1- How Can I Change My Life?



PHILIPPIANS 2:12- " ... Continue to WORK OUT your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who WORKS IN you to will and to act according to his good purpose." ("work out": "your salvation": "God works in you": )

GOD'S PART & MY PART IN CHANGING ME

1. God's Part In Changing Us: His Word, The Bible
"The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives; it straightens us out and helps us do what is right. It is God's way of making us well prepared at every point ..." 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (LB)

Our Part In Changing Us: We Choose What We Think About.
"Be careful how you think. Your life is shaped by your thoughts." Prov. 4:23
"Your mind must be renewed by a spiritual revolution so that you can put on the `new self' that has been created in God's way ..." Eph 4:23-25

Rom. 12:2 Think > Feel > Act

Proverbs 23:7, "As a man thinks in his heart, so he is."
Philippians 4:8, "Finally, brothers, whatever is true ... noble ... right... pure ... lovely ... admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy -- think about such things." "... fill your mind with those things ..." (GN) "...fix your mind on them ..."
Verses for Bible Meditation: Psalm 1:1-3, Phil. 4:8, Col. 3:16, Ps. 119:9 & 11, Joshua 1:8
