Avoid Self-Justification

Lk. 18:9-14

Anyone who will receive justification from God must put on the attitude of humility. You must be humble enough to accept God’s verdict on you that you are a sinner who needs to repent and accept Jesus into your life. You must not be like the Pharisee in the passage that put his trust on his self-righteous deeds of fasting, praying and payment of tithe. Rather, you must be like the publican who pleaded for mercy. The Bible declares that the publican went to his house justified than the Pharisee. Therefore, put your trust in God, who alone can justify you and do not justify yourself by your “good” deeds.

Point of Emphasis:   Whoever humbles himself will the Lord exalt and justify.

Prayer Point:            Lord, give me the humility to accept Jesus for my justification.
