These are a few of our favorite SINS: Pride & Humility (Lent 5)
Friends, even more important than the kindest thing you’veever done is knowing Christ.
More important that coming to church every Sunday,giving to the food pantry, helping out at the Easter egg hunt; more importantthan everything else you might do with your time is to know Christ and thepower of his resurrection—to know and to understand and to believe in yourheart that Jesus died for you. Before you were even born, Jesus died for you.Before you even knew what a sin was, Jesus died for yours.
I know you know this. But sometimes we forget.
We forget and sometimes we do good things and good works forthe wrong reasons—to impress others or to bring glory to ourselves or … maybeeven because we think God will love us more if we do more good things.
And that’s when all those good things become like garbage.Worthless, because really they’re done for US instead of for God.
