I’m pretty amazing and I have led many Christians to God. I teach four Sunday School classes every weekend and I spend all my extra time online ministering to others and sharing all my incredible wisdom that I’ve learned through my one-of-a-kind testimony. God uses me to changes lives every day, and this world is so much better off because God made me. When I speak, it is always relevant and never redundant, never. I am a great Christian who loves God and God obviously loves me.
Do you know folks like this that love to shine the spotlight on their spiritual accomplishments and religious resume? Probably the only part of that statement that is worth repeating is, “God obviously loves me.” Yes, He does! Because daily He extends grace to each of us. Daily He forgives our flaws and pride and covers us with His perfect love.
But it’s rough when God shines a spotlight on our pride. The moment that our words puff up our pride, I believe the Holy Spirit grieves because we are pushing ourselves into God’s rightful place. Acts 17 says “For it is by Him that we live, move and have our being.” Jesus himself said that even He could not do anything without the Father. (John 5:19)
However, when we fill our hearts with His Truth and pray humility into our actions, the Lord will opens doors for us to bless others, help others, encourage other and speak His Truth. And as Philippians 4:13 says – “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!” Let’s let the glory go to God and the grace go to each other as we journey this life together all in a state of love, humility and forgiveness.
Remember – You are valuable because you exist. Not because of what you do or what you have done, but simply because you are. –Max Lucado
