Seeking for others to pay attention to you for what you say about you is extremely important

Now just so we keep the record straight right from the start. There will be those that say me posting a blog and given my comments and insight about the Bible and God is seeking after attention and self-glorification. My answer:
I do not write these for me. I write these for you. If you read them or not that is your choice. If you believe them or not, again that is your choice. I do this for God, for this is the ministry that he has given me and I will continue to do this until He tells me to stop.
Now for the post:
I have seen one of my fellows recently become more active on facebook. He types this, records that, post trips. All of it aimed at glorifying himself and his “achievements.” This is not humility. We are to place ourselves last. If you place yourself before all others how can you be humble? You cannot.
Philippians 2:3-5 – [Let] nothing [be done] through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Vainglory which is kenodoxia ken-od-ox-ee’-ah; empty glorying, i.e. self-conceit:–vain-glory
Self-conceit – an excessively favorable opinion of oneself, one’s abilities, etc.; vanity.
Vanity – 4. lack of real value; hollowness; worthlessness: the vanity of a selfish life.
5. something worthless, trivial, or pointless.
Give praise and glory unto those about you not yourself is what those that call themselves “Christian” are supposed to do. Yet in many places this is not what is being taught not only outside Christendom but within it as well.
When someone says “God is inside you and only through you can great works be done.” This is a twisted and false teaching meant to make you look to yourself to accomplish all, but we are not to look to us but God through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ that we are to turn and go too. We are to pray to Him and seek His aid and council through the Bible and the Holy Spirit.
God is not within us. God is throughout is the universe. Yes we can commune with Him and yes we can hear Him inside your mind. To say that God dwells in the corruption is misleading and a false teaching and so it is something made by humans for humans. It is a way not to take responsibility for our actions.
Even after you become saved and are committed to Christ you still sin. How do I know this? Because I sin. Do I do it on purpose? No, because I am human. Here is what they Bible says in inside humans:
Mark 7: 21- 23: For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
If this is inside us God would spit us out of Him… oh wait. Jesus did say that very thing:
Revelation 3: 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth
Seeking after the self is repugnant to God.
So don’t share your life on facebook, but Christ’s life. Send out His teaching. Share His word. Like what is called Blessed by God and humble yourself.
