How could I improve myself? (Page 4)
e I i h u: nah, Rom 10:9 That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
e I i h u: other way around produces self righteousness, because only God is good and therefore to truly rid oneself of evil, one must first be buddies with God
bbotkin1958: Yes, I believe you are correct. Romans 10:9 and/or Mark 16:16 would indeed have to be the 1st place to start.
Notice how Romans 10:9 reads... "will be saved"? And in Mark 16:16... "shall be saved"? This means that one isn't saved just yet. One must "follow thru" and DO God's will... James 1:21-22.
Seems that we understand one another here. Rare thing to find... No?
bbotkin1958: It's all about improving oneself spiritually. Fitness is always good but is it good enough?
bbotkin1958: When I was your age I thought so as well. As life unfolds and shit happens, then what I'm saying here will begin to fall in place.
Purplehue: Do something Random something meaningful with passion or just because suprise someone anyone suprise yourself who knows you may grow a little more and decied you like something that you never tried before.
EnigmaticJen: After every project, every week, every meaningful interaction, I try to ask myself four simple questions:
1. What happened?
2. What went well?
3. What went badly?
4 What will I do differently next time?
It works well for me.
