Release

Many people are walking around in self-imposed captivity.  They have allowed certain thoughts and feelings to take root in their hearts and minds and, as a result, are seeing life slip away.  They have become their own enemies.  This 5-week series will walk through the healthy spiritual journey of letting go of some key unhealthy behaviors: pride, anger, lust, jealousy, and bearing a grudge.

January 2, 2022 – Letting Go of Pride

Jeremiah 9:23-24

One of the most challenging tasks in life is corralling the monster of pride.  There is so much internal and external pressure to focus on self, to inflate the importance of self, and see meeting the needs of self as of utmost importance.  While the need for significance is legitimate, God directs us to find that significance through a path of humility and emptying self.  Only when pride is identified and killed can true life in Christ begin.

About the speaker

David Langewisch

First and foremost you need to know I am a sinner who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus. I believe my life is fully in him. I feel good about my training to be a pastor. However, my heart's desire is to simply be a servant of Christ, used by him to help people experience fullness of life in him. Sometimes I think I’m smart. Sometimes I think I’m funny. But I count all of this as a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ and being found in him. My favorite book of the Bible is Romans, and if you have to pin me down, my favorite chapter is Romans 8. Personally, I think this matters more than knowing I’m from Minnesota, or that I was graduated from Lutheran schools starting with elementary school. Curiosity might lead you to ask about my wonderful wife, Lynn, and four children, but I would probably exaggerate about their greatness and how helpful would that be? If you really want to know other positions I’ve held, honors I’ve received, etc., you can ask and I will try to remember. But when you walk away from our conversation, this is what I want you to remember about me – I am a sinner who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus and I believe my life is fully in him. And if, in my contact with you, some of this rubs off on you, and you share the same perspective with greater conviction, I will count it a blessing.
