Seven: Marveled Moods
In the last installation of "Overlooking the 7" series, I thought that it would only be fitting to discuss the moods of Christians. A Christian is unlike any other individual in that they are infused with the presence of God as well as person of Jesus. Therefore, they shouldn't be moody. Christians shouldn't be unpredictable wherein they're up today and down tomorrow. Christians should have some resilency as well as positive consistency within their moods.
Christians are also infused with the power of the Holy Spirit which enables them to walk in the LOVE OF CHRIST. Unfortunately, many Christians don't realize that enough. What if this was realized in Christian marriages? The divorce rate in the church wouldn't be half as high as what it is. What if this was realized at places of employment? Christians wouldn't get so angry at a supervisior or fellow employee and become critical. What if this was realized in our churches? Then Christian churches wouldn't be so divided on trivial issues, pious biases, and cultural preferences. We would choose to be joyful no matter what, at least most of the time. Bottom line, we all need to check our attitudes at the door plus look at problems and pressures from a Godly perspective.
Then we will be able to allow problems to roll off us like water on a duck's back---remaining focused for God rather than full of our feelings.
