Increase your self-acceptance

..The sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.–Philemon 1:6

You may think highly of yourself, but God wants you to know who you are in Christ and like yourself. Here are five practical tips to help increase your self-acceptance and your confidence of knowing who you are in Christ:

  1. Never speak negatively about yourself. The communication of your faith is made effective by acknowledging every good thin in your through Christ Jesus, not by focusing on your weakness and flaws.
  2. Avoid comparing yourself to others. Peter encountered this obstacle when he compared himself to another disciple. He said, …Lord, what about this man? Jesus replied, If I want him to stay(survive,live) until I come, what is that to you?(John 21:21-22). We are not called to compare, only to comply.
  3. Let God determine your worth. Remember, because of Jesus, you’ve already been accepted by Him.
  4. Keep your flaws in perspective. It’s okay to see where you need to improve, but make sure you appreciate your progress.
  5. Discover the true source of confidence. If you place your confidence in God, you can’t help but have a healthy attitude. Do your best, and leave the results to Him.
