So… in thinking about what was going to be my 1st blog topic today, led me to think about both my pastors (Dr. Creflo A. and Taffi L. Dollar) recent teachings on the faith of what an AUTHENTIC Christian should be and its co-relation to a tweet quote I read sent by John C. Maxwell in regards to Integrity. “Integrity is the glue that keeps our way of life together. We must strive to keep our integrity intact. – Billy Graham”

To me what it means to be an AUTHENTIC Christian is to do what Jesus would have done. To have compassion, have a strong sense of integrity, have temperance (and all the other fruits of the spirit) be able to correct and be corrected (teachable) with love, and a willingness to lay your life down for the Abba Father.
One of my attitude adjustment plan steps is to work on correcting one challenging thing about myself one day at a time. So that what I want to be projected about my character lines up with the WORD and is pleasing to God. In order to do this I know that I need to know what God says about me, have a teachable spirit, be able to hear the voice of God and be willing to obey it immediately. By doing this I am developing what I like to call the “Self Correcting Spirit”. Knowing when something is wrong (does not line up to God’s word) and being able to correct my actions and words before they become habits.
Today I am reviewing my INTEGRITY. What aspect of your character will you be reviewing / working on correcting today?
