John: Pride & Prejudice

John 7:40-52

There’s a difference between arrogance and confidence. God wants to destroy the one and build the other in its place. This Sunday, we’ll be looking together at John¬†7:40-8:12, where we’ll see Christ squashing the arrogance of the Jewish leaders of His day, most of whom people would never have dared to confront. And we’ll see Christ instilling confidence in a sinful woman, to whom most would never have shown any grace. And as we do, may the Lord address us about the pride in our own hearts, pride we might not even realize is there.
