pride and boots

2 John 1:7-9

7 Many deceivers have gone out into the world; they do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist. 8 Watch yourselves so you don’t lose what we have worked for, but that you may receive a full reward.9 Anyone who does not remain in Christ’s teaching but goes beyond it, does not have God. The one who remains in that teaching, this one has both the Father and the Son.

We either have a message worth hearing and following or we don’t.

If we do, then why do you live as though it is merely an addition to your life and not life itself?
Why do you say, “I’m a Christian” and disobey the Christ?
How can you be a disciple of Jesus and not pursue discipline?

There are myriad ways to help yourself out of whatever problem you find yourself in whether as a result of your sin or another’s. You do not need Jesus to pull yourself up by your bootstraps.

You just need your pride and some boots.

Either Jesus is worth everything or He is just another thing.

Which is He to you?

If He is just another thing to you, it is no wonder why you feel and believe that you are just another thing to Him.
