It is our belief that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the only way
to make a successful transition from your old pattern to the
"new" you. Therefore all teachings and programs at Tabitha
are based on scripture. "Behold how good and pleasant it is
for brethren to dwell together in unity!" (Psalm 133:1)
One of the greatest skills you will learn during your stay at Tabitha
House is how to live together within the Body of Christ
Trust has to be earned. Yes, you have been forgiven. That is not
the issue. Trust is a matter of demonstrating that your walk is
equal to your talk. Your Christian character has to have time to
develop and old patterns of sin must be broken.
God commands us to "walk worthy of our calling" (1
Thessalonians 2:12). If we demonstrate obedience to Christ in
this way, other Christians will know we can be trusted. It is not
wise to trust someone who has not demonstrated trustworthiness.
The Lord has begun a new work in you, having a humble and teachable
spirit will enhance your Christian growth. you will have to put away
your old ways of thinking - especially the prison mentality. As you
focus on Jesus, new patterns of thinking and behaving will take over more
and more as you are conformed to the image of Christ.
"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in
humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should
not only look to your own interests, but also the interests of others.
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus."
