Beware of PRIDE! (by Gina)

Beware of PRIDE!

Last Sunday, Pastor Jonathan continued to teach on our hearts’ condition and the things that can bring us to a place of hardening our hearts.

There were a few points that stood out for me.

  1. The hardening of one’s heart is a process. It doesn’t just happen; it’s often a series of events and choices that will eventually bring us there. It was a great reminder for me to continue to do as the word says in 2 corinthians 13, examine myself daily and continue to allow God and others to show me what I need to work on.
  2. The second one was Pride; it was eye-opening to hear that it comes right before one hardens their hearts.

That really got my attention because I saw different ways that pride was slowly creeping in for about a week or so. Some I conquered on my own (with God and the knowledge that I have acquired through teachings at Crosspointe) and some by reaching out and sharing with my Crosspointe family.

One situation was conquered with the encouragement that I got from our Life Group Leaders to apply for a position that I didn’t think I was qualified for. That was false Humility, another form of Pride!

I am very grateful for this message because it really helped me face that last bit of Pride that I wanted to take root. After I acknowledged it and repented, pride wanted me to stay in self-pity, but I decide to RISE! By dinner time, I was feeling great, and I was able to have a wonderful week!

God reveals to redeem! He doesn’t condemn. He corrects those He Loves, and I am so grateful for His Love!
