I am a new man in Christ
|I successfully train others to do the Work of Kingdom
Service. I am benefited by their work. I give them generous credit for their
accomplishments. I give elders double honor, thereby encouraging them to be motivators as
The LORD is increasing the size of my household, and I am motivating my servants for Godliness.
I inspire others to greatness.
I am becoming more and more skilled at exciting others about their calling.
My friends know me to be reassuring.
My family sees me becoming more and more cheerful.
My invigorating habits are an asset to my community.
Those I work with are delighted that I am a boost to their own work.
I am not afraid to be giving and supportive in a culture which is competitive and selfish. I do not "win" by making others lose, but by helping all people to become more productive and attain their goals. My desire to enhearten and edify others pleases God.
I am committed to becoming more and more helpful.
People around me can depend on me for a shot in the arm or a pat on the back.
The Spirit empowers me to stimulate others.
I often think about how I can rally God's people to holiness.
I provoke others to good works.
My spirit reverberates with buoyancy.
I can tolerate those who are fearful and destructive of themselves and others. I patiently comfort and exhort them to become all that God created them to be, but I am sensitive to the Spirit beckoning me away from them if they are resistant. I will not be dragged down by self-destructive people, sucked into "pity parties," and sucked dry by selfish parasites.
I have a natural affinity with those who build others up.
My conscience knows the value of commending others.
Inspiring others is a real passion with me.
These words resonate in my being; God's Word empowers me to empower others:
|In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being
predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel
of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.
-- Ephesians 1:11-12
This book of the Law shall not depart out of thy mouth: but
thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all
that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt
have good success.
