Fighting Our Preoccupation With Self

How you feel, pretty much in every moment, is connected to how you believe things are going relative to your sense of self. It is out of our identity, and perception of self, that our motives and actions flow. The Gospel answers our fallen self-obsession with a great work of grace in Christ.

In this episode of the Everyday Disciple Podcast, we’ll examine what drives our pride and continual self-focus, and how the Gospel leads us to freedom and relational peace.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • How your understanding of God’s stance against pride may be wrong.
  • Why we spend so much time focused on self and what others think.
  • Why thinking less of yourself is not the answer to pride.
  • How the Gospel leads us to focus more on Jesus and less on ourselves.

Get started here…

fighting preoccupation with self

From this episode:

The remedy for our preoccupation with self is a greater and growing focus and preoccupation with Jesus and his perfection. Not our DO to BE list of accomplishments, not focusing on our failures, not working hard to see others as ‘more’ and ourselves as less. And not just trying harder to be a good person or a good Christian. No… it’s rightly seeing God for who he is, in connection to ourselves.
