DEVELOPING A STRONG CHARACTER

DEVELOPING A STRONG CHARACTER
John 10:10 "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy: I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly."
Satan is working in wanting to change the identity of the children of God. He originally lost their identity (Lucifer: seal of perfection) and became Satan, adversary, opponent because he wanted to be like the Most High. He who opposes God, that's Satan.
The only ones who can be like God, are the sons of God. And that is your identity. Say: "I am a beloved child of God."
The identity was given to us the day we were born again and develop it for us to form a character.
The character begins with honesty with oneself, with the honesty with oneself. Being fully intact people.
Integrity means: someone who is not divided into parts. God says: "Hey Israel the Lord is one ...". Say, "is one."
We are a spiritual being, we have a mind, we live in a body. A tripartite being, but that often is disintegrated, and if it is broken up is because it is lacking in integrity. Lacking integrity is to be separated from himself.How can a being disintegrated? In the spirit I think one thing, my mind I think another, and with the mouth speak another.
Our whole being has to become a whole and complete in Christ. So we need to form a character and be totally honest: Being honest with ourselves and with others.
Today in every activity there is corruption, which is a problem of the same person, something internal, is lack of well-formed character, being separated itself.
Say: "Christians are made to make a difference". It means that the church is set to excel.
Many times there is no difference in the lifestyles of Christians and non-Christians. But we will succeed. Jesus warned us about the role of the devil: "kill, steal and destroy." But we can not kill, or steal, or destroy, not depend on it, but it depends on us.
Now, Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life in abundance ..." To reach the fullness of life, to abound, I must do certain things. That was what the apostle Paul wrote to the church at Ephesus, "until we all attain the stature ...". Fullness, "the perfect man ...".
If someone came to some destination in life and do not agree, you have to stop and cause a change to the Word of God. Everyone reaches their destination because forged or developed a character. The character of Christ in his life.
Character always has to do with doing what is right, has to do with obedience, with transparency and it is possible to know the Word of God.
1 - God is the main positive reference.2 - People who are believing and living in the word of God are his second positive reference.
Reference: those people with whom we spend more time and which absorb things. What we absorb? Attitudes, values, behaviors and beliefs.
What is the identity of the church? Be very favored. Then why do you live underdog? Because something is put into the heart, you have to take.No one can put anything in my heart, but if I spend time with negative references, I will influence their attitudes, their values, their behavior.
When I start to walk in the Word, automatically, a separation is made with those who will not walk uprightly.Character is the final result of the consequences that make me reach my destination. Which begins with the word of God, and the Word of God is Truth.
Good character: wraps to do what I do so that others may prosper. The true character becomes a producer always adding others.
The type of character that God has determined what we learn to expect. But also the kind of character that we develop is what will determine what other people expect of us. What do you expect the next generations of us? Leave them unresolved conflicts to rise again to the Lord.
Proverbs 16:32 "Better is he that is slow to anger than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he that taketh a city."
That is, self-discipline. To be more than conquerors defeated living in a world we must govern our own lives and our own spirit. In other words, be self-disciplined.To succeed I surround myself with people disciplined, positive people, people who have goals, and to progress at the same time.People who do not succeed in Christ, they usually do not because they are undecided.
Undecided: who has difficulty deciding, doubtful, yet undetermined. Lack of determination is the presence of not having formed or developed, the character of Christ in me.
Job 22:21 - 23 "Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee. Thee, the law from his mouth,And lay up his words in your heart. If you return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built away iniquity far from thy tabernacles. "
Only God's friends (I am a friend of God) appears to us blessing.When I'm in the Lord will be built. The character is built, is formed.
Promises: "You'll have more gold as dust, and stones of the brooks gold of Ophir, the Almighty shall be thy defense, and have plenty of silver. For then you will delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God. You will pray to him, and he will hear you, And you will pay your vows. Also decree a thing, and it shall be established, and the light shall shine upon thy ways. "Job 22: 24-28
It means that indecision is no determination, and no lack of determination is by having developed a character, in the character of Christ.Says, "and light shine upon thy ways ..." ie "and will project efectuarás something ..." The certain are those incurred, the undecided are those who never made.
A full character leads me to make tough decisions that will lead me to my destination, to achieve wholeness.Jacob, a quiet man, means: stable, steady, steady, permanent. And it also means, solid, firm, solid, dense, compact and strong. What is the strongest quality of character? Persistence. Jacob changed her identity, but he kept the spirit of persistence, because he was a quiet man.
Who develops the character has to develop in Christ, evidenced from persistence.
Your perseverance will take you to achieve what you have not met! But you program yourself for perseverance! Start with character, continues with perseverance put into action.
