Attitude is what makes a person.
My make up and how I present myself is something that must be looked at and compared to that of Christ if I am going to find myself pleasing to God.
World way of thinking is that we are born a certain way and therefore must accept ourselves as who we are for what we are.
They adapt and do not change. The world believes that if my tendency is to be brutally straight forward with someone with out any kind of tact, then everyone else needs to get on board with it. If my tendency is to not want to offend even if it means lying, then that is ok as well.
They make excuses for themselves saying that this is just the way they are and were born with this kind of personality….
God calls me to change who I am and become Christ like.
John 1: 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
We are given the power to become one of Gods people, change who we are as sinful man and become a righteous man before God.
Heb 2: 6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?
I am not all that I think that I am, my purpose is not be successful in this world and live life to the extreme, but it is to give God pleasure by my willingness in my service to him.
Rev. 4: 11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
2 Cor. 5: 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
My old way of thinking of whom and what I am about are washed away and now have become new in Christ and in his way of thinking and doing.
