10 Ways to Overcome Pride on the Christian Race

If you can overcome pride then you have the devil under your feet! It is a common phenomenon that at a point in your Christian race the spirit of pride would love to wine and dine with you…

Since the only gift from pride is destruction then today’s message would teach you the steps to take to overcome pride.

How to Overcome Pride

1. Always remind yourself that you are a servant who takes order from GOD who is your Master.

“A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.” (Matthew 10:24)

2. Regular reading of the Bible would help your conscious state of mind and you won’t fall into the temptation of pride.

3. One major step that helps Christians from a prideful lifestyle is the meditation on the Word of GOD every day.

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” (2 Timothy 3:16)

4. Set your mind every morning to live your day in a way that Jesus Christ would have done.

“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.” (Philippians 2:5-7)

5. You can’t overcome pride if you always compete to have the new brands of worldly things such as; cars, clothes, cosmetics etc. which does not glorify the name of the LORD.

6. Engage yourself in evangelism to the lower-class, it humbles me when I do such.

7. If you notice any sign of pride then memorize the Bible verses that you think can best help you to resist it.

“Therefore, whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:4)

8. Do not joke with your personal relationship with the LORD! Always devote time to pray, worship and praise Him.

9. It is important you check and balance yourself daily and repent from any ‘sin’ that might look ‘harmless’ to you. Anyone with active sin cannot overcome pride!

10. Three major instruments of pride include; money, position and fame. So, if you have them kindly subject them to bless the poor without broadcasting on the media. This step would make you overcome pride and your wealth would also increase in heaven.

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” (Matthew 6:19-20)   

I pray you overcome spirit of pride as you follow the steps above in Jesus’ name.
