  • Meet with one or two other believers for purposeful relational connection as well as larger community gatherings.

4. Emotional-Learning to Manage Your Emotions

  • Understanding your emotions, how they effect you and learn to respond with Christlikeness
  • He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit, than he who captures a city. Proverbs 16:32 ESV
  • And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 ESV

  • Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control. Prov 25:28 ESV

6. Intellectual-Thinking like God

  • Developing the Mind of God
  • I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. Rom 12:1–3.
