Self is always The Problem
John 3:30 (KJB) He must increase, but I must decrease.

Are you living under the weak auspices of self-governing; or living in submission to the supernatural power and authority of God?
For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. (Romans 10:3 KJV)
The Bible tells us righteousness comes from God. Apart from Him there is not one ounce of goodness found in man. Since the entrance of sin into this world mankind is naturally ... Continue Reading →
