It's All About You, Right?!
Want to feel good about yourself? Well, you can either watch or read good ol' Joel Osteen, or click here for an immediate self-image boost.
Come to think of it, didn’t the Sermon on the Mount say, “Blessed are those who feel good about themselves”? No, that’s not it. It was, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Mat. 5:3).
Man’s problem is not poor self-esteem; he has plenty of that! Rather, it’s his sin which has separated him from God. Are we not called to deny ourselves and take up our cross and follow Christ?! He said, “For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” (Mat. 16:24-25)
Take a look at Pastor Gary E. Gilley’s Biblical View of Self-Image and tell us what you think.
