361 Moving Out of Conceit
August 7, 1989, continued
Give me verses, Jesus, of what my attitude SHOULD BE:
Jeremiah 44:10 humble myself and show reverence to God
Romans 12:3 Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
4-8 use the gifts He has given
9 love must be sincere
10 be devoted to one another in brotherly love; honor one another above yourselves
14 bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse
16 live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud but be willing to associate with people of low position.
And… do not be conceited!
Galatians 5:26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying one another.
Philippians 2:3-5 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather in humility value others better than yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.
1 Peter 5:5b All of you clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.
Ephesians 5:21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
1 Peter 3:8 Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.
