1 Corinthians 14:24-25
24 But if all are prophesying and some unbeliever or uninformed person comes in, he is convicted by all and is judged by all. 25 The secrets of his heart will be revealed, and as a result he will fall facedown and worship God, proclaiming, “God is really among you.”
A Word from the Lord can cut to the division of joint and spirit, bone and marrow.
Your pomp can only drive another to despair or pride.
Despair if they cannot imagine being as holy as you dress yourself to be.
Proud if they observe your unrepentant hypocrisy and say to themselves, “at least I don’t think I’m all that like (insert name here)”
Don’t deprive others of the opportunity to be cut to the quick by your insistence on building yourself up before others.
