Jan. 31, 2016 “Submit To God” 1 Peter 5

1 Peter 5

There is no place in the body of Christ for the exaltation of any man or woman. There is only One who is to be exalted in the Christian church, and that is our Great God, and Savior, Jesus Christ. Exalting people goes against God’s Word. Peter writes: “All of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for God resists the proud.” (1 Peter 5)   Pride is one of the seven things that God hates (Prov.6:16,17). Peter also wrote: “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.”
