Confidence Versus Arrogance

Faithfulness is one of the keys that unlocks confidence in Christ. Check out what the Apostle John wrote. He said:

And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming. – 1 John 2:28 (NIV)

There is a difference between confidence and arrogance. When we live our lives in faithful service to Jesus, we can have confidence in our status before Him when He returns. It’s not arrogance. Arrogance says, “Don’t you know who I am?” Arrogance believes that one deserves Heaven. Confidence says, “I know who He is.” Confidence believes that the grace of God is sufficient to bring us to our heavenly home. Arrogance pridefully thinks that it is all about us. Confidence humbly knows that it is all about Him. This confidence we have comes from walking faithfully with Jesus in love for and service to Him. Be faithful today and confidently trust in His grace to lead you home.
