The Thin Line Between Pride and Confidence!

Hello my fellow worshippers.  This morning the Holy Spirit is reminding me that when God looks at me, He actually looks at me through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ!  That means that we are counted worthy of His Kingdom and our calling when we have a healthy mindset of who we are IN CHRIST JESUS!     (II Thes 1:11  Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:)

So the thin line is this::::::  the Holy Spirit reveals to us our identity in Christ and we are to have bold confidence in the cross alone.  We are only worthy through the cross of Christ.  We are not to be “coward soldiers”, but at the same time we are not to walk in pride.  God hates pride and gives grace to the humble and resists the proud.  (James 4:6)
