Exposing the Heart of a Humble Man
At the end of the day, overcoming pride is essential to being able to overcome sin. But to just get rid of pride isn't enough. There must be something to take its place.
That thing is humility, and without it there can be no true deliverance from sin, nor any true fellowship with God. God is irresistibly drawn to those who exhibit this characteristic and so, it is a heart attitude that we ought to be zealous in cultivating.
