“Humility” this Sunday

Here are the quotes on pride and humility from my sermon this morning.  I’ve also added my source for these quotes; most come from Humility by C.J. Mahaney

Jonathan Edwards:
“Pride is the worst viper that is in the heart, the greatest disturber of the soul’s peace and sweet communion with Christ…the most hidden, secret and deceitful of all lusts…’What a foolish, silly, miserable, blind, deceived poor worm am I, when pride works.” 
(from Humility)

Charles Spurgeon:
“Depend upon it, our judgment is very much like a pair of scales: if Christ goes up self
goes down; and if self rises Jesus falls in our esteem. No man ever sets a high price upon self and Christ at the same time.”
(from my source for Spurgeon quotes)

John Stott:
“At every stage of our Christian development and in every sphere of our Christian discipleship, pride is the greatest enemy and humility our greatest friend.” 
(from Humility)

D.L. Moody:
“God sends no one away empty except those who are full of themselves.”
(from 3000 Quotations on Christian Themes by Carroll E. Simcox)

C.J. Mahaney:
“Humility is honestly assessing ourselves in light of God’s holiness and our sinfulness.” 
(from Humility )

Terrell Owens:
“I love me some me!” (I’m sure you can find this on YouTube)
