God’s Word, offensive to Pride and Self Righteousness


The only thing that keeps you from receiving God’s grace is PRIDE rooted in SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS.  God’s word in truth is offensive to pride and self righteousness.  Therefore, if you have any pride or self-righteousness it will be exposed.

God’s structure of grace tells you that there is only one who has the power to bring forth fullness, and that is Christ Jesus in his righteousness with the Father . If we are unable to receive that power of the righteousness of Christ Jesus, it is because we are still holding onto the fact that we cannot do what is necessary.

We have to understand, it is our weakness that draws God.  It is in our weakness, where He is strong and that is through the righteousness of His Son.  That weakness of knowing we have no righteousness, is humility and brokenness.  That is a contrite spirit, and someone who is able to receive the abundant grace of God.

If we are still nursing our wounds and living in the pain of the past, it is because of our own pride and reveals our need to mature in God’s love and in His grace.  God’s love brings us into maturity.

If we are always talking about the pain of the past and wanting to put a blanket of things on us to remind us of all of the pain then we are in pride; it is self-righteousness.

Truth of God’s word is offensive to those who dwell on the past and live in pain.  It is then that pride is exposed and self-righteousness and people get on the defense, trying to defend their pain and their self-righteousness, trying to defend their pride.

Grace only goes to those who are looking at the righteousness of Christ Jesus.  Healing and fullness in the place of your weakness brings an awakening to grace, an awakening to love.

Don’t major on your pain, because that is self-absorbed and self-righteous, which is self-ish.  Make your major the cross of Christ Jesus, that has defeated the pain of your past.  Receive God’s grace and His abundant love, which brings wholeness and healing.
