Humble Pie - Daniel 4 from Donald Crane on Vimeo.

Daniel 4:1-3 & 28-37
Don Crane

Pride is simply our refusal to acknowledge God as we should.

1. Knowing from where your help comes.
Daniel 4:34a – “At the end of that time, I Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven and my sanity was restored.”
2.Acknowledging God is Greater.
Daniel 4:34b – “His dominion is an eternal dominion; his kingdom endures from generation to generation.”
3. Recognizing God is Right.
Daniel 4:37 – “Now, I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble.”
When you see your life and what you do everyday … is it a declaration of Soli Deo Gloria (To God Alone Be the Glory) … or is your pride in the way?

"Easter Joy" Poem

Easter Joy

Jesus came to earth,
To show us how to live,
How to put others first,
How to love and how to give.

Then He set about His work,
That God sent Him to do;
He took our punishment on Himself;
He made us clean and new.

He could have saved Himself,
Calling angels from above,
But He chose to pay our price for sin;
He paid it out of love.

Our Lord died on Good Friday,
But the cross did not destroy
His resurrection on Easter morn
That fills our hearts with joy.

Now we know our earthly death,
Like His, is just a rest.
We'll be forever with Him
In heaven, where life is best.

So we live our lives for Jesus,
Think of Him in all we do.
Thank you Savior; Thank you Lord.
Help us love like you!
