Pride

Pride the root of  Offense.  And Pride is the number one (#1) killer of Christian witnesses. lol     

Pride is thinking more highly of ourselves than we ought. (Romans 12:3) The bible warns us the consequences of big head fallinga haughty attitude.

Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.__ Proverbs 16:18 KJV

Pride says, “I  deserve more (fill in the blank)  than I give”.  Pride is being forgetful of my capacity to offend others.  

These six things the Lord hates,Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongpeacockue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.__ Proverbs 6:16-19

A prideful “Christian” is an unlearned believer.  The more we learn about the holiness of God, the more we see our need for Jesus. The more we learn about what Jesus has done for us, the more gracious we become.   We understand that were blessed to be a blessing. We suffer with Christ for truth and righteousness sake. We encourage others along the path with our shining lights pointing to God, not ourselves. Before  Our Heavenly Father we stand in the righteousness of Christ, but not as an affront to a lost soul.3 crosses

We all have as much grace as is required to secure Salvation for our soul.  That’s what I think about Jesus’ outstretched arms on the cross. He loves us THAT much!  In Jesus I (we) have as much love and as much grace as I need .  .  . I am awed, I am  thankful.
