A Word from the Word

Second Corinthians 10:17 says, “But he who glories, let him glory in the LORD. For not he who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends.” Unfortunately self-exaltation seems rampant throughout Christianity, particularly within the ranks of Christian leaders of one sort or another. How different the situation would be if the Holy Spirit was truly in control. When promising the disciples of the coming of the Holy Spirit, Jesus said, “He [the Spirit] will guide you into all truth…He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me.” Let each of us who know the Lord determine that whatever else we do, we’ll yield unreservedly to God’s Spirit to honor Jesus Christ in all our ways.
