Self Glory

Created to Worship: Romans 1

Authority of Man vs Christ: Mark 7

Responding to Christ: Luke 18

Three ways we can glorify self:

  1. We make vocal what should be private

  2. Looking for praise and applause from man

  3. Being a “nominal Christian” – in name only without knowing God or his commands

“The word must confront our self focus and self absorption at its roots, opening us up to the vastness of a God defined, God centered world. Unless this happens, we will use the promises, principles, and commands of the word to serve the thing we really love: ourselves. This may be why many people read and hear God‘s word regularly whether lives remain unchanged. Only when the reign of the word penetrates the roots of the problem does lasting change occur.” – Paul David Tripp from Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hand

“When we realize and remember the true narrative of the Bible, redemption, and living for the glory of God, this will help uproot self glory, which causes so much destruction and sin issues in our lives.” – Paul David Tripp from Instruments in the Redeemer’s hand

Ways out of Self Glory:

  1. God’s Sovereignty

  2. God’s Grace

  3. God’s Glory
