Just Be Yourself

Do your best to present yourself to God as one who surely knows and confidently walks like his son, Jesus Christ. As a believer, think of yourself with sober judgment but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline, one unafraid to endure the laughter and scoffs of the nonbeliever. In your resolve the word of God and work of Jesus will be made known. With all moral courage, the natural fruit of a trusting faith in God, you are one saved by grace. Just be yourself.

So I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God and man. Acts 24:16

Because God has given me a special gift, I have something to say to everyone among you. Do not think you are better than you are. You must decide what you really are by the amount of faith God has given you. Romans 12:3

So stand strong, with the belt of truth tied around your waist and the protection of right living on your chest. Ephesians 6:14

God did not give us a spirit that makes us afraid but a spirit of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7

Make every effort to give yourself to God as the kind of person he will accept. Be a worker who is not ashamed and who uses the true teaching in the right way. 2 Timothy 2:15

About admin

I am a depraved, morally bankrupt wretched sinner through and through. I’ve attended church sporadically most of my life, haven’t spent a minute in seminary and only recently gave the Bible more than a cursory review. I’ve attended exactly one theology class and I dropped out of that. However, in spite of my moral infidelity, I’ve come to be filled with the Holy Spirit. I’ve learned my salvation isn’t the result of what I do, but rather what Jesus has done on my behalf. I didn’t find the Holy Spirit, He found me. And in our relationship I have invited Him to change me, to use me for His purpose, to conquer my will with His own. Praise the Lord, for even an unworthy, chronic sinner like me can experience and give testimony to His glory!
