Sermons on Pride
Though our world is diving deeper into chaos, our purpose remains the same: to be a witness of Jesus Christ. Jesus came to save the world from their sin and bring people into a right relationship with God through Him.
King Uzziah begins well in his reign, but soon began to think he was the reason for his success. He became prideful and overstepped his boundaries. And the Lord had to deal with Him by some interesting means. It’s a reminder for us that God is our strength, and He should get all the glory for all we do.
King Amaziah comes on to the scene and it says he did what was right in the sight of the Lord, but not with a loyal heart. And that made all the difference in the world. He was led into compromise and eventually puffed up with pride. A divided heart will lead you into unnecessary trouble.
We continue to look at a couple nations surrounding Israel that were soon going to feel the hand of the Lord against them. Their common struggle was that of pride. They began to consider themselves a god rather than rely on the One True God. And thinks won’t work out so well for them.
