Selfishness

December 2, 2008 at 9:05 AM Leave a comment


The only thing necessary to change heaven into hell — if God were to allow it — is selfishness.

Selfishness is mankind’s fundamental defect. Selfish means:self-centered, self-serving, self-important.

At the root of every problem is selfishness.

JAMES 3:16 TEV
16 Where there is jealousy and selfishness, there is also disorder and every kind of evil.

Every selfish person is potentially your enemy.

All sin is selfish. No one ever sins for someone else — we do it for selfish reasons.

Divine love is the opposite of selfishness. Giving is the opposite of acting selfishly.

We are products of a corrupt culture that teaches selfishness, so it’s not unusual for us to think it’s not so bad.

But you must die to selfishness — or self-destruct. However, you’re unable to change by yourself. You can’t change the fruit without changing the root. That’s why you must be born again! Only by receiving Jesus Christ and letting Him change you inwardly can you become a truly unselfish person.

No other “religion” teaches to put others first, to love your enemies. Only Christianity teaches you can be totally changed and become a person with a new nature. There is no cure apart from Jesus!

SAY THIS: Jesus, please cure me of being selfish.
