The ultimate and efficient intention of the mind in the form of the old man is to commit itself in a deep and hearty commitment of the soul to self-gratification.
The new man however is a spiritual mind, or a disposition to please God instead of self. It is right over against the carnal selfish state. The mind is fully committed to pleasing God so this becomes the chief purpose for which the individual reacts and acts.

The newborn souls spoken in the scripture are those that as matter of fact overcome the world. The common thing about them is that they do not sin and are not in bondage to Satan. The affirmations of Scripture respecting them must at least embrace their general character. And this is of course equivalent to having the victory over the world.

Thus the mindset we have about money determines our actions and reaction to it. If money occupied the thought all the time with lesser care for other things, this could tempt evil. Thus being a good manager of money affects our perception of and how we think about money.

A Christian way of prosperity that follows the principle of Christ should be different from the manners of the ungodly. The ungodly are ready to do anything to acquire wealth. Most of the strategy is full of corruption and criminal intent. Though few of the wealthy had been able to acquire wealth in a just manner, the majority had not been righteous.

Great opportunities for success are often lost when scholars try to avoid risks. Youths who concentrate on small matters do not take risks on great adventures. No man can make an outstanding achievement by taking risks on small ideas.

There are many parts to the Christian ministry, but some aspects are more important than others and Christian believers must watch so that the enemy does not take advantage of their carelessness.
We must therefore give priority to certain aspects of life to remain alive. Difficulties and challenges come and go but life must be protected and preserved in order to sustain it.

Do you know that great achievement does not come perchance? It is not a product of “trial and error”. It does not result from gambling. Great success is a product of dogged determination to study and achieve success. Wisdom demands that you identify those activities that compete with your study time and do away with them.

God is interested in your physical growth, spiritual development, and academic advancement. The gift and potential to grow and move forward are available to you in Christ. All you need to do is to “stir up the gift of God, which is in thee” (2 Timothy 1:6) to achieve your life ambitions.

Though the stress-coping capacity of each type of personality differs. Type-A is more likely to go down with stress-related illness than Type B. However, both types of leaders, are achievers because a leader’s effectiveness doesn’t depend on whether he is Type-A or Type B. All effective leaders will experience stress in a measure. But we may all learn to manage the effects of stress such that we stay on top of it and our health and behavior remain unaffected. I will state the coping mechanisms as tips.

Though stress is part and parcel of active life. You can’t but welcome stress if you’re alive and active.
In fact, experts say stress is useful as a work-life morale booster. Yet another kind of stress that results in distress, fatigue, emotional disorders, mental breakdowns, and other health problems are the monster all leaders should learn to manage.

Are you a leader at the helm of your organisation? And you think you’ve got all it takes to keep the organisation running and moving up? But if good communication skills aren’t among your credentials, your leadership is heading for storms. Effective leadership without effective communication is impossible.

Though life does not always run on the fast lane, nor does it roll on the conveyor belt of a fast food production joint. More often than not, life involves patiently waiting for the right time. For believers, this underscores the necessity of faith, trusting God to act appropriately in His own time.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” (Jeremiah 29:10,11).

This is God’s benevolent act towards his people. His mercy is awesome with manifold benefits of God to us: forgiveness of sins, healing, redemption from destruction, love and mercies bestowed, provisions, good health and sound mind and God’s righteous judgements.

The message of the Gospel is the free gift of eternal life to those who believe. “God has given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son”; that “Christ is made unto us wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption”. Only in Christ is our whole salvation.

There are many things involved in soul-winning such as earnest piety, common sense, spiritual wisdom in adapting means to the end. Matter and manner and order and time and place all need to be wisely adjusted to the end we have in view. Without this sagacity and adaptation of means to this end a spiritual mind will fail to win souls to Christ.

In preaching the Gospel, we must present those truths. Sinners must be convicted of their enmity. They do not know God and consequently are often ignorant of the opposition of their hearts to Him. “By the law is the knowledge of sin,” because by the law the sinner gets his first true idea of God. By the law, he first learns that God is perfectly benevolent and infinitely opposed to all selfishness.

Christ, through His authoritative pleadings at the throne remembers our persons and pleads our cause. His dominion over principalities and powers and absolute majesty in heaven, he employs for the benefit of those who trust in Him. His high estate is as much at our service as was His condition of abasement. He is the very present Help at the hour of need; only He can deliver from death and the power of the grave.

The word of God declares that, “Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure and whether it be right” (Proverbs 20:11). True Christian youths must be obedient, kind, loving, respectful and good to others. The Christian youth ought to have a testimony of good behaviour among the other students. He must be a shining light in the darkness of the world where he lives.

There will be lots of changes in our life experiences if we choose to pray rather than complaining. Most people tend to grumble on many things. There could be many things that bother our minds at home, in the school or workplaces and in the society that may tempt us to murmur.

It is a very rare privilege to have the Lord of heaven as one’s own Shepherd. Jesus says, “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep”(John 10: 11).

When God’s fullness arrives, everyone will know it: “And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit” (Joel 2:29). When the former and the latter rains descend, it will turn into a flood. Those who receive it will be used mightily as the anointing flows upon those all around.

It is a common saying that, he who fails to plan has already planned to fail. You must always plan for progress.You will be more organized to have a clear direction in your work when you plan before taking action. It is of great advantage to always plan on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis in order to build on past achievements and to work for the prospects of future achievements.
