Sermon: Submit or Resist

Romans 12:3

“For by the grace given to me, I tell everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he should think. Instead, think sensibly, as God has distributed a measure of faith to each one.”

 

Pride does go before a fall! Try balancing these two truths: “I must not be prideful, but I must understand just how much God values me.” It’s not easy. Satan can use our self denigration, what I call the worthless worm syndrome, to discourage us and keep us from using our gifts and knowing our value to God for Kingdom work. On the other hand, pride takes God out of the picture and attributes any contribution to God’s Kingdom to us and not to God. To be both bearer of the image of God and part of fallen humanity is more than a theological issue; it is the daily struggle of being a disciples. But we maintain the proper balance by praising the One who made us his child and adopted us into his family.–Phil Ware

I Chronicles 29:11

Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the splendor and the majesty, for everything in the heavens and on earth belongs to You. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom, and You are exalted as head over all.

Gems from “Whatever Happened to Worship?” by A. W. Tozer

Oh, brother or sister, God calls us to worship, but in many instances we are in entertainment, just running a poor second to theaters.

Romans 12:15

“Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep.”

We are not alone. God has given us each other to live our lives for him and get us back home to him. Along the way, we want to share each others burdens, soar on each others joys, and love each others hurts. There is no such thing as a solo Christian.–Phil Ware
