Revelation 3:17-18 (KJV) “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.”
So often people don’t recognize their real state, especially ministers.
Honesty is a lost value in preaching, since it seems some ministers are more concerned with the modern “curse of inclusiveness” rather than conviction of the Holy Spirit bringing sinners to true repentance!!!! We need to evaluate our true state as God sees it, not man’s foolish assessment.
