Attitude is defined as a state of mind; it is the position of the body or the manner of carrying oneself.
Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
(2 Cor. 13:11 KJV)
A lot of people may say, "Well, I don't have an attitude." Even if you don't say it, an attitude is displayed by the way you carry yourself.

Some of us show attitude with our body language and with our mouths. But if we have the attitude Christ wants us to have, we can show it by our body language and our words. And because it is of God, our attitude won't hurt anybody.

Our attitude can be destructive or constructive. The more you develop the mind, the will, and the attitude of Christ, the less the attitude of the flesh can dominate our relationships.

Many of us don't have peace because we don't have the mind of God. How can we be of the same mind with each other if we are not of the same mind as God? We don't have a choice if we want the promises of God. Yes, you may receive a promise here and a promise there, but that is not good enough for me. I want it all.

That is like somebody taking you to the mall and buying you several outfits and only giving you one of them. Well, things are being withheld from us because we are allowing Satan to beat our heads in. The only way he can get to us is through our minds.

The Bible says we are to be blessed coming in and blessed going out. Many of us are just blessed when we go to church. When we leave church, we are cursed because our attitude curses us. That is why it is so important to develop the mind of Christ.

If the body of Christ will develop the mind of Christ, the world will run to us because they will see the blessings of God in our lives. Check your attitude. Look into your spiritual mirror, the word of God, and check yourself out. Whatever you want to happen in the natural realm has to happen in the spiritual realm first. So, come on. Adopt a new attitude.
