3 Training For Righteousness Our Focus: Character Character is what brings true activity in the Kingdom of God; not controlled behavior. We need changed/transformed character.

4 The Three Pillars of Spiritual Growth

5 Pillar 1 The Activity of the Holy Spirit. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. - John 14:26

6 Pillar 2 Ordinary Events of Life: 'Temptations/Trials’ Sickness Unemployment Famine War Tragedy Living with spouse Car trouble

7 Pillar 3 Planned Discipline to Put on a New Heart

8 Examples Can’t stand someone that you work with. You avoid them; wish harm upon them; gossip about them. 1.The Action of the Holy Spirit: a)You acknowledge God’s presence, and confess that you cannot do this alone. b)You offer yourself to God, as one alive from the dead. c)You, along with God, set the proper goal=character transformation.

9 Examples 2.Ordinary Events of Life: ‘Temptations/Trials’ a)You do not run from the situation, but rather, recognizing it as God’s training ground, you consider it ‘pure joy’. b)You humbly, along with God’s help, comprehend the areas that you need to change.  Need to look forward to seeing them; seek their well being; want them to succeed; bless them when you are with them and when you are not with them.

10 Examples 3.Planned Discipline to Put on a New Heart a)Prayer- commit to praying for the person, that they would be blessed with the knowledge of Christ, and yourself as well. b)Bless them daily. c)Memorization- James 3:9-12 d)Meditation- Upon God’s perspective. e)Confession to the person wronged. (if they are aware of it.)

13 Examples 3.Planned Discipline to Put on a New Heart a)Pray b)Silence and Solitude c)Memorize James 1:28,29 d)Meditate upon God’s Perspective e)Together with God, find the root of the problem. f)Train yourself to always run your words past God before you speak them.
