Hubris

Hubris—excessive pride and a sense of self-importance—is a constant battle for me. Yet if you knew me well, you would understand that my hubris constantly rubs shoulders with the gnawing question, “Am I good enough?” So, what is wrong with me?
 
When I use myself as a measure for my value—my skills, accomplishments, appearance, or status—I get a false answer. I either think too highly of myself or I think too lowly of myself. Neither my hubris nor my low self-esteem reflects the truth of my value to God.
 
When I examine my heart, God tells me, “Bob, I made you in my image and you are
...fearfully and wonderfully made…”  Psalm 139:14 NIV

I am reminded that because of Jesus, I am both a sinner and His child.
...to all who did receive him [Jesus], to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12 NIV
 
I am His and He is mine. Living in this truth leaves no room for hubris. Will you join me in embracing our privileged position in Christ?
