1 Accountability / 47 As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another (Proverbs 27:17, NIV). Friends Graduate Review Key (NIV) I can learn from others. Attitude Is Everything Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:3 5, NIV). I should have the same attitude as Christ. Battle Stations : For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6:12, NIV). The Holy Spirit is with us to guide and protect us during spiritual battle. Bible For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any doubleedged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart (Hebrews 4:12, NIV). I should measure my life by the Bible s standards.
2 Child Care / 48 Jesus said, Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these (Matthew 19:14, NIV). Little children are important to Jesus, and He trusts me with them. Choices Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God s will is his good, pleasing and perfect will (Romans 12:1,2, NIV). God will help me make right choices. Commitment to Christ So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness (Colossians 2:6,7, NIV). I need to keep growing in my relationship with Jesus. Creation each You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being (Revelation 4:11, NIV). All things were created to give God glory and praise.
3 Family Life / 49 Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble (1 Peter 3:8, NIV). God wants me to be a blessing to my family. Fitness Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body (1 Corinthians 6:19,20, NIV). I can honor God with my body. Friends for Life Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends (John 15:13, NIV). I need to think of others first. The Holy Spirit And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days (Joel 2:28,29, NIV). God wants to fill me with His Spirit.
4 Integrity / 50 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel (Philippians 1:27, NIV). I should represent Christ in every situation. Life-Controlling Problems Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God. You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to God (Romans 8:8,9, NIV). I will not allow anything to control me except God. Multiculturalism You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:26 28, NIV). God calls me to treat everyone with respect. Peer Pressure Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain (1 Corinthians 15:58, NIV). I will stand strong in Christ.
5 Personal Evangelism / 51 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile (Romans 1:16, NIV). My life should be a testimony for God, drawing others to Him. Prayer The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective (James 5:16, NIV). The prayers of the righteous are effective. Pure Heart Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me (Psalm 51:10, NIV). God wants me to live a life of purity now. Resolving Conflict Do to others as you would have them do to you (Luke 6:31, NIV). I must show Christ s love to others.
6 The Sanctity of Life / 52 I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live (Deuteronomy 30:19, NIV). We must honor the value God has given to our lives. Self-Discipline For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say No to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age (Titus 2:11,12, NIV). God s discipline protects me.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well (Psalm 139:13,14, NIV). God has a special design for my life.
