Seeds of Faith

You think you’re so smart!

You think you’re so good!

You think you’re so …. __Fill in the blank.___

These snide comments usually come in the middle of an argument. And usually imply that they think you think you are better than them.

Paul says to the “Galatians, For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.”

Still think you’re something? Think again. “There is not a righteous man on earth who does what is right and never sins.”

Is that message a downer to you? Boast in this.

“But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”

Crucified in Christ, we are now something! Forgiven, redeemed, children of God.

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, NE. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn.
