What is the opposite of pride? In other words, if you aren’t being proud, cocky, haughty, or arrogant, what can those traits be replaced with?

Read [su_tooltip style="bootstrap" position="top" shadow="no" rounded="no" size="default" title="Philippians 2:5-11" content="5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." behavior="click" close="yes" class=""]Philippians 2:5-11[/su_tooltip]. How did Jesus demonstrate humility with his life?

How does coming to know Jesus give us everything we need to live a godly life?

Recognize Jesus is God and He wants to have a relationship with you. It was because of your need for forgiveness that He willingly went to the cross, surrendering His life as a payment for your sin so you might be forgiven. Jesus wants you to know Him.


Admit you are a sinner and need to change. Admit you are deserving of death.
Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Genesis 6:5 Psalm 53:3, Proverbs 20:9, Isaiah 53:6, Isaiah 64:6, 1 John 1:8

Believe that Jesus died in your place and rose again.
Romans 5:8, Acts 2:24, Acts 3:15, Acts 10:39-40, Luke 24

Call on Christ, invite Him into your life to be Master, Savior, and Lord.
Romans 10:13, Acts 10:43, Revelation 22:17

Paul was content, not because he had everything that he wanted, but because he knew that God was in control even in tough circumstances. Read [su_tooltip style="bootstrap" position="top" shadow="no" rounded="no" size="default" title="James 1:2-4" content="2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." behavior="click" close="yes" class=""]James 1:2-4[/su_tooltip]. How can you have joy when you are going through a tough time? How does going through that difficult circumstance help you grow?
