How do we overcome pride in our life? Here is a suggestion:
As a Christian, I am a child of the King of kings and Lord of Lords. Did I do anything to earn this wonderful position? NO, I did not. For by grace, you and I are saved, or made right in the eyes of God, it is nothing you or I do, no works on our part, nothing we can boast about. Rather, it is a gift from God to us. See Ephesians chapter 2, verses 8 and 9.
When God reached down and brought me from death to life in Him, I was in the gutter, without life. God adopted me into His family, His eternal family.
So how do I overcome pride in my life?
(1) recognize the fact that I am a child of the King, I am royalty.
(2) recognize I am adopted, not born into royalty, and remember where I came from...the gutter.
Humility can be our walk in life when we remember this truth.
