Apples of Gold - August 21 |

Hunt, Dave

There is no basis for self-esteem/respect, even if I obey and serve God perfectly, for it can only be through His grace and power and not of Self. Moreover, Christ said that if we do everything we are supposed to do, we must still regard ourselves as unprofitable servants who have done only what we ought to have done. In fact, we are less than that and thus have cause for shame as fallen creatures, not for self-respect or self-esteem or self-worth!

"So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do."
