The “Arrival”

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Have the Goodie read to you!)

Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before (Philippians 3:12-13).

Pride works in the believer to make him think that he has somehow “arrived” scripturally and spiritually. It embraces a self-confidence that one’s life and knowledge of the truth has already been perfected; that we have attained some level of personal perfection.

The fact is that none of us presently possess “all truth” infallibly. None of us has a corner on truth.

… We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but charity edifies. And if any man thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know. But if any man loves God, the same is known of him (I Corinthians 8:1-3).

Seek the truth. Study the Scriptures. Adjust your understanding.

Keep an open mind, and an open Bible.
