Pride~it is the one enemy that is not external, an enemy we cannot defeat, against which willpower fails.  Pride.  It rises up within us, and subtly ensnares our emotions to react in ways which do not please the Lord, or others, but it also is that sin which we mask in ourselves, and which we easily can see in others.  Pride.  It is a jailer, and provides for us an internal prison giving reign to the old man and holding back and muffling the voice of the new creature we become in Jesus.  It is a deep root that leads to all other sins.  Only through Him can this prison be destroyed, the jailer thrown out of a job, and the root dug out and killed.  Only from a position of power through the Living Lord Who lives in us can pride be defeated, and as an adopted child of God, we have that power within by the Lord Himself Who is our shield and the Captain of our souls!  Listen as Deacon Josh explains just how strong is that power from Christ Himself, and just how important it is to acknowledge our own pride, then use that knowledge to destroy its root in us. Pride--the enemy within.    Access Deacon Josh's notes at Copyright 2016  All Rights Reserved
