The Ten Attitudes of Victorious Living ... Seeking God!
This page was last updated: August 25, 2022
1 ... Humility
I admit I am powerless over the affects of drugs and alcohol, and 
self-centered behavior — 
my life is unmanageable.
Jesus said:  “Blessed are the poor 
in spirit,  for theirs is
 the kingdom of heaven.”  
Matthew 5:3 NKJV

2 ... Repentance
I believe Jesus Christ can and will create in me a new way of life.
Jesus said:  “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”  
Matthew 5:4 NKJV

3 ... Submissiveness
I give my will and my life 
to Jesus Christ.
Jesus said:  “Blessed are the meek, 
for they shall inherit the earth.”
Matthew 5:5 NKJV

4 ... Honesty
I honestly examine myself in 
the light of God’s Word.
Jesus said: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, 
for they shall be filled.” 
Matthew 5:6 NKJV
1 Corinthians 12:31 NIV
When we finally get clean and sober, we must learn to live a new life with a new character. When we become new creations in Christ, we must put on His spiritual life and put off the old, worldly, prideful, selfish, lustful nature. In His Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5, 6 and 7), Jesus describes the attitudes of His followers. “The Most Excellent Way” ministry is centered on God’s Word, and Christ’s Beatitudes are our foundation for change.

 “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.”  
Philippians 2:5 NKJV
5 ... Mercy
I humbly ask God’s forgiveness for my sinful past.  I am able to forgive those who have hurt me.
Jesus said:  “Blessed are the merciful, for they 
shall obtain mercy.”
Matthew 5:7 NKJV

6 ... Obedience
I desire to live under the
 guidance of God’s Holy Spirit 
— day by day.
Jesus said: “Blessed are the pure 
in heart, for they shall see God." 
 Matthew 5:8 NKJV
These Attitudes are the character qualities 
of Born Again Believers!
7 ... Reconciliation
I ask forgiveness from God 
and those I have hurt or 
dealt with unfairly.
Jesus said: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall 
be called sons of God." 
Matthew 5:9 NKJV

8 ... Faith
I trust in the power of 
Jesus Christ when I face hardship and trials.
Jesus said:  “Blessed are those who are persecuted for 
righteousness sake, for theirs 
is the kingdom of heaven." 
Matthew 5:10 NKJV

9 ... Perseverance
I stand firm in my faith that Jesus is in control of all things.
Jesus said:  “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.
Rejoice and be exceedingly 
glad, for great is your reward
in heaven, for so they 
persecuted the prophets 
who were before you." 
Matthew 5:11-12 NKJV

10 ... Loving Servant
As a new creation in Christ, 
I share with others the Good News of a risen Savior who makes His people whole.
Jesus said: "You are the 
salt of the earth; ...  
You are the 
light of the world ... 
Let your light so shine 
before men, that they may see your good works and glorify 
your Father in heaven."
 Matthew 5:13-16 NKJV
Jesus said: 
"But seek first the 
kingdom of God and 
His righteousness, 
and all these things
shall be added to you."
Matthew 6:33 NKJV
