“It’s Not About You!”

Lou Coleman

Lou Coleman

By Lou Coleman

Always want to be front and center. Well, not today, tomorrow or the day after that. Get over yourself! It’s not about you! It’s about God. He is front and center. Today, tomorrow and always, and He WILL NOT share his glory with no one. You got that?

Listen; to be effective in ministry you need to learn one thing – don’t take yourself too seriously. Don’t get stuck inside your own ego, because over time it will become your prison. Pride is one of the most common of all human errors and shortcomings. A person who is too filled with pride is arrogant, self-important, egotistic, big-headed, egocentric, boastful and cocksure. Pride puffs us up and makes us think that we are bigger and more important than we really are. That is not the mark of Christianity. Ephesians tells us again and again that the life of a Christ-follower is not about us but about Him. So don’t get it twisted… It’s not about you!

You ought to know that throughout the Bible virtually every part of it condemns the proud. For example, in the Psalms, the writer said that pride is the necklace worn by the wicked. In the book of Job pride is considered the force that blocks people from hearing and responding to God. Not only is pride a universal sin, but the Bible points out the consequences of pride. What happens to a person who is too full of himself or herself? The people filled with pride shall be humbled and brought low. As the Old Testament prophet Obadiah said: “Your proud heart has deceived you … Though you soar aloft like the eagle, though your nest is set among the stars, from there I will bring you down, says the Lord.” And the greatest prophet of them all Isaiah, speaking for the Lord, told the proud that they will be forced to make their bed with worms and maggots. There is no pulling of punches when it comes to describing the fate of the proud in the Bible. Pride is a deadly sin that causes those filled to overflowing with themselves great sorrow and grief.

The message is clear from beginning to end in the Bible – the proud will ultimately be brought low. The proud will ultimately fall. The proud must live with the consequences of their actions and their deeds. Perhaps this is a good day to say sorry to God for the pride in your heart. Perhaps today is a good day to begin to put right those things that your pride has caused. Perhaps today is a good day to clothe yourself with humility and to start to live the Christ-like life God has shown to you.

So what do you say? Do you want to overcome pride in your life? Do you want to get rid of the arrogant and disdainful conduct which is plugging up your life? Do you want to have a more realistic opinion of yourself and be less conceited? Do you want to eliminate your smug, egomaniacal, over proud attitude? If so, then become the servant of others. Second, come to appreciate the wonderful gift of God’s creative and sustaining power. Third, learn about Jesus and celebrate what he has done for your life.

You know, Paul wrote that if we claim to be Christian, we cannot continue to live our lives as anything but. We can either walk through life focused on ourselves, our wants and supposed needs, or can we walk according to the Holy Spirit with God’s will in our sight.

Today, I call heaven and earth to witness against you, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them” [Deuteronomy 30:19-20].
