Wednesday our pastor taught on our attitude or mindset as Believers. Just a quick nugget, with an instruction for you to think upon it, meditate on this truth, that it might create an excitement in you to serve God:
Many look at the Christian faith as things we have to do, or have to stop doing. “If I expect God to bless me, then I have to stop (specific sin). Now I have to start giving money to the church, I have to go to church. …” You can put anything here that you view as something you have to do as a Christian.
That is totally the wrong way to look at it. If you have really believed upon Christ for salvation, your attitude should be, “Wow, God chose me! I get to worship Him in Spirit and truth. I get to serve Him and honor Him. He has given me the opportunity and the power to become like Him.”
When you look at it as a great opportunity God is giving to you, then you will have a growing desire to please Him. You will WANT TO do the things He asks. It won’t be viewed as a heavy burden.
Selah (Stop and think about this).
