Jeremiah 9:23-24
Subject
Seventh and Deadliest Sin
Description

In this message we are going to look at how a righteous pride in Christ is fleshed out – in this journey our pride will be redefined as a dependence and assurance of God’s goodness and power.  We will put our pride and our boasting upon the works of God. 

Jeremiah 9:23-24 (ESV)
23 Thus says the Lord: "Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches,
24 but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord."

As we put our trust in Jesus for our lives and for direction, we develop a pride in who He is in us and what He is doing in the world.  We express this in thankfulness and obedience to His will and call.
