Releasing Pride, Welcoming Humility

Releasing Pride.

Sunday Follow up

by Pastor Ed Weaver

 

    Pride won't be happy until it has us on the throne.  

    Pride imprisons us in a life limited by our wrong perceptions.

    Pride de-prioritizes everyone else in the room because there is not room for our pride and others at the same time. 

     Pride cannot grow in a servant heart, but humility can!

     There is a solution to the pride we fight with every day.  When we learn to humble ourselves and become a servant like Jesus, pride dissipates and God's character illuminates.

     Today is your day to embrace true greatness like Jesus did, "who being the very nature God did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, and took on the nature of a servant... He humbled himself to becoming obedient to death- even death on a cross!"  Phil. 2:6-8

     May we embrace the true joy of serving others as the key to killing pride in our lives... and - in so doing - be able to truly live!
