Pastor Joshua continues the series of The Greatest by teaching how to release pride and ego and embrace humility.

Matthew 20:26 New Living Translation
26…Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant,
Matthew 23:11 New Living Translation
The greatest among you must be a servant.

The Greatest is Humble:
1 Peter 5:5 New Living Translation
…“God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

Proverbs 16:18 New Living Translation
Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.

Principle: Humility elevates, pride destroys.

Let Go of Ego:
Principle: The more I can reduce my ego, the more I can expand the purposes of God in me.

Principle: If you want to become BIG in God’s Kingdom, you have to become small in your own eyes.

John 3:30-35 New Living Translation
He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.

Reduce the Size:
Principle: God doesn’t want our courtesy, He wants our obedience.

James 4:8 New Living Translation
Come close to God, and God will come close to you…

Conclusion/Pockets of Pride:
Principle: Pride will always limit God in your life.
Principle: Humility makes one great. Pride makes one poor.

James 4:6-7 New King James Version
…“God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”
