If anyone else thinks he has reason for confidence in the flesh, I have more: 5circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee; as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness under the law, blameless.
At this week’s Adult Ministries team meeting, Pastor Jack Delk presented a devotional that highlighted two possible dangers that surprisingly lurk in the middle of making progress in your sanctification and growth in holiness: pride and forgetting grace.
If you make noticeable progress, you might become inflated, proud, even cocky.
Or, when you make progress, you might forget that it was God who did it and be tempted to take credit for your own reformation.
Remember God, and stay low.
