Pastor Mike’s Minute Message: The Stench of Arrogance

As for me, may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Galatians 6:14 NLT)

*Sigh* Being a football fan & the season is now over, I become less & less infatuated with watching a pro game every year. This year’s Super Bowl media “hog wallow” was hard to watch as players stressed to the world how wonderful they are. Only the pig enjoys the stink of their own mud…

As followers of Christ, our life is spent imitating Christ; in this case, imitating His humility. Jesus didn’t bellow His own press reports, but He lived to give the glory to the Father. Even the apostle Paul, with all of his achievements, knew that our trophy case is nothing compared to the grace we receive from our Father! What could we ever do to compare to the smallest act of unselfish love that He does daily?!

As you go about your day today, ask God to show you just how humble, or not, that you are. Celebrate the victories of others & your life will be celebrated too! And pray for this guy, that my attitude improves about professional athletes… Thankfully, we are all loved today! Make it a good one!
