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
