Romans 12:3"For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith."
Do not conform to the world. The worldly pattern is the pride of life. Thinking you’re the center of the world. Our call to worship pointed us to seek the Lord. Are we praising Him or positioning ourselves? Are we preparing to confess our sin to Him? What do you have to confess, really?
We compare ourselves to others and are prepared to preen more than ready to repent. We think we deserve more than the 11th hour worker. WE have born the big load while others have slacked off. We’re convinced we’re getting at least an 85% on God’s test. But what about that offense you just can’t forgive, that keeps slipping out to others in gossip? What about that point of pride you just can’t get over, where you know you are right, you are best? That constant fear and anxiety that exposes your lack of faith?
Oh come, let us worship & bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our maker.
