THE LORD’S PRAYER
ANTHEM “I Then Shall Live” *Prerecorded
SCRIPTURE & SERMON Rev. Steve
Abundant Life:Think About These Things| Philippians 4:8 ESV; 1 Peter 1:13; Psalm 73:2-3; Philippians 4:10
Finally, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Philippians 4:8 (ESV)
1). Be Mindful of Thought Provoking Influences
Preparing our minds for action, and being sober-minded
1 Peter 1:13
2). Declare Some Thoughts Off Limits
My feet had almost stumbled; my steps had nearly slipped. For I was envious of the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
3). Make a “To-Think” List
What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things and the God of peace will be with you.
“Our life always expresses the result of our dominant thoughts.”
