ARROGANCE

For all that is in the world the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world. 1 John 2:16 New King James Version

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18New King James Version

 

There are only two sins and we all have them: pride and lust.

Pride is taking credit for the accomplishments Jehovah has blessed us with. That is very arrogant and He will not tolerate it.

Being haughty means to look down on others because you believe you are superior to them.

 

Would you be haughty towards Christ if He were to physically walk into your world today?

 

Many think not but actually would.

Be careful because your wealth, good looks, physical strength can be taken from you in the blink of and eye.

 

We are all one step from the gutter. Anonymous.

With each one we lust for more of our own glory instead of working for the glory of Christ.

 

There is only one cure: It must be crucified.

This does not entail a physical death but rather a spiritual one.   It will be the most painful experience of your life but on the other side of it you will praise Jehovah every day for it. I certainly do.

It is not quick. Mine lasted a year and many I have spoken with it lasted up to four years.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God of love) for blessing me with teaching me and equipping me to live a live dedicated to serving You and expanding our divine loving relationship. I sing songs of glory to You in the name of the king of love Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. Message was on point. Great Word ! !

  2. We need to Love ourselves if we are to Love and respect others but we can’t do this in the Carnal flesh it is impossible because it comes from the empowering of The Holy Spirit, that is why it has to be put to death as you shared Ropheka , and we can’t Love God or others without His empowering .

    We also are to have Godly Pride not worldly pride which is the pits , to Love oneself as the Scriptures below confirm is to take Pride in our position in Christ Jesus. We listen to Godly advice not worldly imaginings or rebukes from those who walk in their Carnal Flesh.

    There are two types of Pride, Godly Pride and worldly or fleshy pride.

    What Worldly pride is…

    Mark 7:22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:

    1 John 2:15- 17 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the Pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

    What Godly Pride is …

    Galatians 6: 4 Each one should understand their own actions. Then they can take Pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to others.

    2 Corinthians 8:24 show these men the proof of your Love and the reason for our Pride in you, so that the Churches can see it.

    2 Corinthians 5:11-12 Because we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade others. It is plain to God what we are, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience. We are giving you an opportunity to take Pride in us not trying to commend ourselves again to you so that you have an answer for those who take pride in what is seen rather than in what is in the heart.

    Romans 11:13b I take Pride in my Ministry.

    As a Christian I also take Godly Pride in my Ministry to those who are in darkness, and rejoice with those who are not as I’m sure you do too.

    Christian Love in Christ Jesus – Anne
