A New Me: Everybody is Self-Righteous
Everybody is lazy in some way. Everybody! You may argue with me about that. You may say, "I work 80 hours a week! I get up early in the morning, and I never stop. How could you call me 'lazy'?
Maybe you're lazy in different ways. Maybe when you and your wife have an issue, you're too lazy to walk across the room and ask her to forgive you. Maybe you're too lazy to spend time with a kid who you haven't been around in awhile. We're all lazy somewhere, and we're all self-righteous somewhere. Check this out:
I just want to remind you of a few thoughts from that sermon:
How do you know you're self-righteous?
- You judge the motives of others.
- You are an archaeologist of sin.
- When you put guilt by association on others.
How do we eliminate a self-righteous mindset?
- It begins with a private moment with Jesus. (John 3:1-2)
- It requires a turnaround in your life. (John 3:3,5-7, Acts 3:19)
- Expect to find a bold, unashamed walk with God. (John 3:16)
