Book of Study: Masterlife - Book 2 - The Disciple's Personality (click book above to purchase).

The Disciple's Personality  provides an understanding of why we think, feel, and act as we do and explains how to become more Christlike in character and behavior (worldly and spiritual).

My Present & Future!

Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Worldly Christian

I am still experiencing being a Worldly Christian in this present day. I have ways that are still carnally minded. I still will watch the television, when I could be studying The Word of GOD. I still enjoy worldly entertainment. I'm still experiencing fornication. 


As I think about my life when doing this assessment, I must say I think the reason I allowed myself to make putting this together difficult, was because I wasn't ready to confess that I still have ways that are not fitting to GOD and His Word. I searched my heart and mind for over two weeks trying to make it "sound good" or "pretty", when in fact it is not and I just need to be transparent. 

The Word says in Philippians 2:13 - "for it is GOD who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose." I'm learning that GOD's loving purpose is that I should become mature in my faith. I should become more and more like Christ (it's truly a task and a great responsibility, man!).

GOD gives me the desire to obey Him. And He makes that desire strong. He gives me the power to do His Will. I need to accept His gifts because He has begun a good work in me. I MUST allow the Holy Spirit to work in ME to become a full Spiritual Christian. 

Spiritual Christian

In assessing myself before, during, and now at the end of The Disciple's Personality - Book 2, I know I no longer have both feet in the "worldly pond"! I've learned that GOD is living in me in some important ways. I am learning some structure, discipline, building my strength in faith, and seeking GOD everyday in some way.

 

I live for the day I can completely say "I am crucified!". I dream of the day when I full get out of my own way and not entertain the enemy due to having an unwavering faith (and I know it's coming). There will be order in my spirit, in my mind, and in my soul. I will have a testimony on finances, fornication, relationships, forgiveness, and being fully awake for GOD!

The Words says in Romans 12:1-2 - "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of GOD's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to GOD - this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what GOD's Will is - his good, pleasing and perfect Will."

GOD has shown his great love to us all. So we should be grateful. If I have the right attitude to GOD, then I will think rightly about myself and will to allow the enemy in. 

To get out of my own way, I MUST offer my body as a "sacrifice to GOD." I should try and use every part of my body in a manner that pleases GOD:

  • Use my feet to go where GOD wants me to go and try to be in places that pleases Him.
  • Use my hands to give practical help to others. To praise and worship Him.
  • Use my ears to listen to others problems and hear them to help.
  • Use my mouth to speak encouraging words, scripture, songs, and share the good news about Christ.
  • Remove fornication and give to my Husband as GOD intends it be. 
The right use of my body will be like the perfect sacrifice that pleases GOD and will stop blocking my blessings. That is the goal of reaching to become a Spiritual Christian.
