 Pride, self-conceit, and self-exaltation ~ Pearls from Philpot

Pride, self-conceit, and self-exaltation, are both
the chief temptations, and the main besetting sins,
of those who occupy any public position in the church.

Therefore, where these sins are not mortified by the
Spirit, and subdued by His grace; instead of being, as
they should be, the humblest of men; they are, with
rare exceptions, the proudest.

Did we bear in constant remembrance our slips, falls,
and grievous backslidings; and had we, with all this,
a believing sight of the holiness and purity of God,
of the sufferings and sorrows of His dear Son, and
what it cost Him to redeem us from the lowest hell;
we would be, we must be clothed with humility; and
would, under feelings of the deepest self-abasement,
take the lowest place among the family of God, as
the chief of sinners, and less than the least of all
the saints.

This should be the feeling of every child of God.

Until this pride is in some measure crucified,
until we hate it, and hate ourselves for it, the
glory of God will not be our main object.

hi, i had the privlege as a babe to see and hear r.g.lee preach pay day someday. after the service,being awestruck by this great preacher preach this great sermon,i approached him and told him how great i thought his sermon was; he growled at me and said that it was a lousy sermon by a even worse preacher and turned and walked away. i thought that this man whom i admired was a rude jerk for doing this. 8 years later God was using me mightily in the healing gifts and all of a sudden everyone i prayed for went down under "the power" i got so enthralled by my popularity... then i noticed that they went down sick and got up sick ,went down lost and got up lost went down without the gift they were seeking and got up void. i wonder if this is an example literally of pride coming before "the fall" jimp
