Jesus said of himself, "I am the Good Shepherd," "I am the bread of life," "I am the light of the world." All of these are very positive statements. And, as I pointed out earlier, they use nouns not adjectives. The nouns are shepherd, bread, light, etc. Could we not come up with similar positive statements to make about ourselves? "I am a child of God." "I am the recipient of God's love." "I am a co-heir with Jesus Christ."
Further, can we limit the negative adjectives we use with reference to ourselves? Could we stop saying, "I am tired," "I am lonely," "I am afraid?" For Luke 6:45 says, "The mouth speaks what the heart is full of." Can we keep our hearts full of the positive, rather than the negative? Can we keep our hearts full of the promises of God? Might we look at what we have, rather than what we don't have? Shall we try it? I'd be interested in your feedback.
