See Your Calling Pt. 2

Your dreams are calling you

And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:… That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord”, 1 Corinthians 1:28-31 (KJV).

Sometimes, religious teaching that harps on our worthlessness in the flesh (Romans 7:18) does more damage than good. There is a truth in this teaching, but without the positive good news of our newfound value in Christ, this teaching becomes a club that beats the life out of us.

The Bible is designed to show us our need for God, and in doing this; a realization of our frailties and comparative worthlessness is a part of the process. Our need has to be made obvious before we will be motivated to turn to the Lord.

People who recognize their complete inability and learn to lean on Christ's ability will have no reason to misdirect the glory to themselves.

Those swelled up with pride do not understand the truths Paul presented in 1 Corinthians 1:26-30.
