Earlier this week, I wrote about our identity in Christ and how God made us a princess or a prince in His Kingdom. We must have certain qualities to look like a princess/prince. Our actions and words must reflect who Jesus is in our lives. Today, I will be writing about the qualities needed to become a princess or prince for God. God expects us to act a certain way for others to see Christ in us. The list below are just a few things that we can do to look like a princess or prince for God’s Kingdom:
(The information below comes from http://www.urbandictionary.com)
- Be noble
- Chooses words wisely
- Makes good decisions
- Thinks of others before him or herself
- Does not expect special treatment from others
- Does not boast or brag
- Respectable and Admirable
- Respect others
- Does not compete with others
- Galatians 5:22-23
“A princess [/prince] is a princess [/prince] regardless of her [/his] attire or her [/his] circumstances” (www.urbandictionary.com). Being in God’s royalty is more than the fancy clothes, ballroom dances, and the crown. Our attitude must represent what a princess or prince is, and always stay humble in our position. We must always have compassion for those around us and forgive easily. We are respected by all and not feared. God expects us to be kind to everyone we meet and treat others as we want to be treated. Instead of being served, serve others! Be the princess or prince God called you to be!
Are you acting like a princess or prince should? If not, re-evaluate your life to see what needs to change. Ask yourself these questions: How can you treat others better?, How can you change your perspective on a situation or person?, and so forth. A princess or prince looks different from the world. Let Jesus shine through you for the world to see!
