There are many godly attitudes one needs to have if a person professes to be a true Christian and this post will look at 10 lists of godly attitudes that are a must-have for every true Christian.
As Christians, our Lord Jesus Christ expects us to behave and have a certain godly attitude that will differentiate us from ungodly people who are unsaved and are without the life of Christ in them.
Without wasting much of your precious time, let’s quickly dive into a list of godly attitudes you need to have that will prove that you are indeed a true believer.
What Is A Godly Attitude?
A godly attitude is simply an attitude one professing the Christian faith displays in their Christian life that reflects the godly character of our Lord Jesus Christ.
It’s also an attitude that reflects the life of Christ in a person that will show a person is indeed a true follower of Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:5-11).
A godly attitude is also based on righteousness and godly principles of the bible that defines the way a godly person carries him or herself in their daily life.
List Of 10 Godly Attitudes You Must Have.
Below is a list of 10 godly attitudes that will differentiate a true Christian from a fake Christian who is yet to be truly saved as is without a life of Christ Jesus in them.
- Praying For Each Other.
- Supportive Of Each Other.
Real agape love that is selfless and puts the needs of others above one’s one is one of the major attitudes that all professing believers need to have. Jesus Christ commands us in John 13:34 in the New Testament that we must love each other as He’s loved us.
Only when we do so will the unbelievers of the world truly know we are indeed true Christians and true followers of Jesus Christ. Our love must be based on actions and not just mere talk, which is what true love, is all about.
Sadly, this isn’t the case with many fake professing Christians out there who only think about themselves in the way they treat others. This ought not to be so. Let your love be the reason why another human never gives up on life.

Having a spirit of humility is also another vital godly attitude you need to display to others as it’s one of the vital fruits of the Holy Spirit Galatians 5:22,23 talks about what will be present in you if you are a true born-again Christian.
This implies that you ought not to think too highly of yourself and think you are better than others. Rather, in humility, you must esteem others better than yourself.
It also means that pride and arrogance must have not to place in your life if you claim to be a true Christian. If you have the humility of Christ in your heart, you won’t exalt yourself or think you are better than others in your actions.
Being gentle to your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ is also a vital godly attitude you need to have in your Christian living if you are a godly person who truly understands what true Christianity is all about (Philippians 4:5).
Implying that you must not be harsh or rude to others even when they do you wrong, especially with your words and actions. You need to learn to speak in brotherly kindness to others and treat others gently as Christ did.
You must not be like the Pharisees of the old who were harsh to others, yet their lives lived much to be desired. If you are gentle in your words and how you treat others, people will open up to you and want to listen to you.

The other godly attitude that you need to have as a true Christian with the Spirit of Christ in you is you need to be kind to others even to people who don’t deserve your kindness.
God’s word tells us in Ephesians 4:32 that as believers we need to show love and kindness to each other which will be proof that we understand what being a true Christian is all about.
You need to understand that God’s love is always accompanied by godly kindness that makes you a pleasant person everyone wants to be around. It’s through your love and kindness that you show to others will many be drawn to Christ via your godly example.
As a professing believer, you also need to show forgiveness to others who have done you wrong, no matter the gravity of the offense done against you.
Jesus Christ tells us in Matthews 6:14 that we must forgive others so that we can be forgiven as well by our Heavenly Father. Implying that, a spirit of unforgiveness and holding grudges must have no room in your life.
If you are a person that harbors, grudges, bitterness, and unforgiveness toward your offenders, then you aren’t a true Christian at all as real Christians don’t harbor unforgiveness as they know none is perfect and we all need grace and forgiveness in our lives.

Being hospitable to others, especially your fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord and faith is another important godly attitude you need to have as a true believer in Christ.
Implying that you must be a person that’s selflessly willing to help those in need. Romans 12:13 tells us that we must pursue hospitality and share with our fellow saints in the Lord who are in need.
We must not be selfish and greedy by thinking only about ourselves as selfishness is not a spirit from God but from the enemy. Learn to embrace the spirit of hospitality and caring for others wherever the chance to do you presents itself to you.
Generosity is also another list of godly attitudes we need to have as believers to others especially those of the same household of faith.
This means that as Christians, we need to learn to share what we have be it our wealth with others. The apostle Paul tells us in 1 Timothy 6:17 that we are to be rich in doing good deeds to others by being generous and willing to share what we have with others.
By so doing, we are laying up for ourselves great treasures and rewards in heaven in the life to come in eternity when all is said and done with our earthly lives.
8. Praying For Each Other.
We are also told in James 5:16 that as believers, we ought to pray for one another in the Lord as that will show we truly love and care for each other in the brotherhood of Christ.
Praying for each other is crucial as Christians as that will help us remain strong in the Lord and not let Satan take advantage of us by trying to sow seeds of division in the body of Christ.
If many professing believers understood the value of supporting each other in prayer in the family of Christ, all these divisions we see in the body of Christ that Satan is using to make us hate each other wouldn’t be happening at all.

Gratitude to the Lord and the blessings He’s blessed you with in your life is another good attitude you need to practice in your Christian life as a believer even in bad times not just when things are good.
We are told in 1 Thessalonians 5:16 that we must give thanks to God in all things, especially the good things He’s done in our lives we often take for granted.
Implying that we must not show a negative attitude of ingratitude toward God by murmuring and complaining when life gets hard by forgetting all the good things God has done for us prior like the Israelites did in the old testament via their murmurings.
10. Supportive Of Each Other.
Last but not least, we are to be supportive of each other in the body of Christ as believers and not allow envy and jealousy to make us want to bring our fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord down.
We need to be there for each other in times of need and learn to lift each other to greater heights. Sadly, this isn’t the case in the church today as many who profess to be believers are the ones who are bringing and tearing others down through their jealousy.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 tells us that we need to encourage each other and build each other up by not allowing jealousy to spring up in our hearts which makes us want to bring others down. Only when we do that will the church be a better place to be.
I hope the above post on 10 lists of godly attitudes every true Christian must have will now help you display godly conduct to others that speak the life of Christ in you.
May prayer is after reading what you have read above be able to practice everything you have read above so that the church can be a better place to be.
