Romans 12:3 "...not to think of himself more highly that he ought to think."
You may know someone that does this very thing! They may base it on their success in life, or maybe just an attitude. When it comes to the things of God. We should all think of ourselves higher than we sometimes do. Some have the mentality that they are just "worms", and unworthy of God's blessings. This is not what God is instructing us to do. Because of Him, we have rights, and privileges. We have been made the righteousness of God through Christ. These are gifts from God, not of works that we should boast. Without Him we can do nothing, but we are not without Him. He tells us that we can come boldly to the throne of grace, and find help in a time of need. We were all "nobodies", but through Jesus we are now "somebodies". So, when it comes to the things of God, go ahead and think of yourselves, as being the children of the Most High.
Thank you Father that because of Jesus we are made right with you. We are humbled by the fact that we are called Your children. We understand that children have rights. Thank you for the rights that we have as Your children. Thank you that we can come boldly to Your throne, and expect to get the help that we need. Amen.
