Flesh Rises Up In Pride

Our flesh rises up in pride.  It raises itself up above others, and against the God’s truth.

When we humble ourselves and submit to the Holy Spirit’s work, we get low.

Each and every situation in our lives gives us a choice.  We either react in our flesh, or we respond with a humble spirit.

Philippians 2:3 says, “Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.”  Lowliness of mind is a mindset.

Thoughts become actions.  Actions follow our thoughts.  Our thoughts will determine if we walk in pride or humility.  Philippians 2:5 says, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.”
