  1. Bob – POINT: There are standards for dressing for success in life --- wearing the proper attire…. Which is applicable spiritually as well.

 

Colossians 3:12–14 (ESV) — 12 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

 

But in order to dress for success --- you need to put off before you can put on…

And this is a grace called sanctification… that is God’s grace in changing us to be more and more like Jesus Christ

 

  1. JT --- This is important stuff … so

  1. JTQuestion ONE

 

Let’s talk some more about the putting off and putting on in dressing for spiritual success…

Is it all on me or all on God to make this change?

 

  1. Bob

YES!             God works in and we work it out…

 

Philippians 2:12–15 (ESV) — 12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. 14 Do all things without grumbling or disputing, 15 that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,

2 Peter 1:10 (ESV) — 10 Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to confirm your calling and election, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall.

2 Peter 1:3–7 (ESV) — 3 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, 4 by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. 5 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, 6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, 7 and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.

Galatians 5:22–23 (ESV) — 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

  1. JT – Question Two…

 

How do you propose we get by the desire to be casual – even in our spiritual dress?

 

  1. Bob

 

  • Discipline makes the Difference in all aspects of life

 

2 Corinthians 10:3–5 (ESV) — 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. 5 We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,

1 Corinthians 9:27 (ESV) — 27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.

 

  • Look Good Feel Good - Succeed

 

 

  1. (JT) Third Question …. Turning to the physical aspect of life….

 

What is the best tip about losing weight?
