LISTEN NOW! John, Pat, and Steve share about the profound truth of God’s free gift of salvation for each of us. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.” –Ephesians 2:8-9. It is through humility that we see our need for God and the reality that nothing we can do personally causes us to be right in the eyes of God. Pride is so deceiving that it causes us to be blinded to our need for God. In addition, it also blinds us to the reality of self-righteousness through religious works. There are hardships, trials, and tribulations that God allows us to go through. As the church, when we see others going through these difficult moments, we can focus our prayers specifically for them. Find out how we can pray for others, the difference between pride and humility, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: mercy, God’s wrath, grace, salvation, pride, humility, repentance, and forgiveness.
