3.         Priorities.

Colossians 3:1-3 PHILLIPS

“If you are then “risen” with Christ, reach out for the highest gifts of Heaven, where your master reigns in power. Give your heart to the heavenly things, not to the passing things of earth.

Matthew 6:33 KJV

And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].”

I Am Determined To Think Like Jesus.

Philippians 2:5-8 NLT

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.

Philippians 2:9-11 NLT

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

I Am Determined To Live in Victory.

I Am Determined To Speak What I Desire.
