Are you driven by self-reliance – believing in the strength of your works and knowledge so much that you have no time for or reverence for God? Have you considered that this may be a spirit of pride in you? Has your wealth, success, knowledge, intellect, prosperity or power led you to neglect God or to believe you don’t need God?
“Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.” Romans 12:3 [New Living Translation]
“For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.” Galatians 6:3 [New King James Version]
“Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.” Romans 12:16 [New King James Version] (My emphasis)
28 God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important.
29 As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:27-29 [New Living Translation]
“18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, ‘He catches the wise in their own craftiness’,
20 and again ‘The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.’ ” 1 Corinthians 3:18-20 [New King James Version]

How Do You Receive Christ into Your Life?
If you would like to receive the gift of salvation that God has for you today, make a decision in your own heart that you want to be forgiven of your sins and that you wish to turn your back on a sinful life. Believe in the Kingdom of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ [Mark 1:15]. The Bible says if you confess with your mouth (i.e. actually say it) that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him (Jesus) from the dead, you will receive salvation [Romans 10:9-10]. Salvation is open to any human being who calls upon the name of the Lord [Romans 10:12-13].
