My Resolutions: Resolution Eight.

Resolution Eight: Resolved: To act, in all respects, both in speaking and doing, as if nobody had ever been as sinful as I am; and when I encounter sin in others, I will feel (at least in my own mind and heart) as if I had committed the same sins, or had the same weaknesses or failings as others. I will use the knowledge of their failings to promote nothing but humility – even shame – in myself. I will use awareness of their sinfulness and weakness only as an occasion to confess my own sins and misery to God.” ― Jonathan Edwards.


Scriptures:

"This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief."  ― 1 Timothy 1:15, NKJV.

"Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself." ― Galatians 6:1-3, NKJV.

"For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith." ― Romans 12:3, NKJV.


My Resolution:

"Resolved: Never to think of myself more highly than I ought, but always according to the grace and mercy God has, and continually shows me.” ― St. Akin de Sage.

I am all that I am only because of Calvary. Love and mercy were shown to me. That is my story. And, I am sticking to it with all I have and do.

I will never forget this world is not my own. I am only passing through. I am an ambassador of heaven. I will carry myself with the dignity that heaven deserves, on this pilgrimage.

This is my resolve. So, help me, God.

St. Akin de Sage.
