11/29/16 Don’t Let Your Pride Keep You From Salvation

As for those who call themselves Jews, believing that they do right by the law, who brag about their heritage before God, claiming to know His will, knowing the Law of Moses well and encouraging those things that they know are good, do not believe that you are exempt from His judgment!  You believe you know enough to be able to guide those who don’t know God at all.  You think you yourselves as a light in the darkness, leading those who are blind and foolish to the light of God, raising little ones up in the way they should go, because you know the Law and keep it.  You teach others not to steal or commit adultery, to set up nothing in the place of God and to honor His Name through the keeping of the Law of Moses.  But are you teaching yourselves?  Are you stealing from others, or even from temples where idols are worshipped?  Are you faithful to your spouse?  Do you break the Law yourself, and thus dishonor God?  Both Isaiah and Ezekiel wrote, ‘The Name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.’  Be careful that you are not letting pride get in the way of your salvation, thus setting yourselves up for ultimate failure on the day of judgment.”
