BE PROUD OF GOD, NOT YOURSELF! Jesus talks about sins that “MAKE YOU UNFIT FOR GOD”  [Mk 7:23 TL] including “PRIDE” along with many other sins including some from the Ten Commandments, “ADULTERIES, MURDERS, THEFTS, COVETOUSNESS” [Mk 7:21-22 NKJ].  When we have “PRIDE”, it interferes with following Jesus who tells us “IF ANY WANT TO BECOME MY FOLLOWERS, LET THEM DENY THEMSELVES AND TAKE UP THEIR CROSS DAILY AND FOLLOW ME” [Lk 9:23 NRS]. The sin of pride makes us unfit for God and for Jesus. Do not be deceived because there are some in ministry full of pride and appear very successful with large followings, “THEY HAVE RECEIVED ALL THE REWARD THEY WILL EVER GET” [Mt 6:2 TL]. We need to remember Jesus’ example when He told God “DO WHAT YOU WANT, NOT WHAT I WANT” [Lk 22:42 IC]. Do you resist pride and deny what you want? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
