This week at Emanuel, we will be continuing in our series on Romans 12 by focusing on verse three: “For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: 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.”
Max Lucado puts it this way: “Do you feel a need for affirmation? Does your self-esteem need attention? You don’t need to drop names or show off. You need only pause at the base of the cross and be reminded of this: The maker of the stars would rather die for you than live without you. And that is a fact. So if you need to brag, brag about that.” Those are good words! May we be people who are humble in our service, confident in our value and determined to focus the spotlight not on ourselves, but on the One who saved us by His magnificent grace.
See you in church!
