The blues are a part of life in this world and even spiritual giants like the prophet Elijah are not immune to spiritual attacks and depression. In this second part of a 2 part message Pastor Ron outlines four strategies for beating the blues and getting back into a God-focused state of mind.
Most of us would scoff at the idea that we were false teachers. Maybe we're not teachers at all. Yet, Peter focuses more on the lives of the false teachers than on their doctrine. We must take a look in the mirror. Are we LIVING like a false teacher? Are we influencing others away from Christ?
I.D. – Attitude April 7, 2013 Text: Philippians 2:1-11; Romans 8:31-34; Hebrews 11:1,6 Key Thought: A Christ-like attitude comes from faith in God, and brings security, humility and confident hope. Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Philippians 2:3-5, NLT
We find the writer of the 106th Psalm in a less than desirable circumstance in life with a most desirable attitude. One look at the first 5 verses of this Psalm makes if obvious that this man is living above his circumstances. How is this so? He has a healthy perspective on life. And where did he get such a perspective? From spending time in the Word of God and learning from the history of his fathers and forefathers. An accurate record of history is a valuable teacher. The Psalmist has learned some very important truths from history. Listen and allow these truths to help you gain a healthy perspective on life, even though you too may be in a place of great disadvantage.
