Overcoming the Hurdle of Pride

Sunday, April 28, 2013 I had the opportunity to share a message about Overcoming the Hurdle of Pride in our series on Hurdles. Philippians 2:1-11 was the focal passage, concentrating on verses 3-4, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to you own interests but the interests of others." The central idea of the message was to Kill the I in me and live for He who died for We. You can listen to the message here.
