An Update from Mark and Corban Vanest

“Hi family at Fountain Square Pres and Solid Word… I wanted to send this along to the group as a way of saying thanks for getting us here. We are nearing the end of our first week as we landed here last Wednesday. The flight itself was great and there were no issues at all. Corban has been a real trooper and seems to be doing really well.

Here are some prayer requests:

1. For Corban – courage, creativity and connection. Pray that God will allow him to find some young guys (American or Egyptian) to hang out with. His birthday is Sunday and I’m hoping to find a way to have a party for him here. So hopefully, this family we are meeting tomorrow can be a part of that. Pray that he and I may have solid times of connecting with God together as well.

2. For the church/preaching – I’m preaching through Micah for the next three weeks. I realized today as I was preparing on my beautiful balcony that many of the ways we think about scripture are going to be foreign to some of the people here. I am excited to share with them how we can see the themes of our idolatry and Christ’s redemption and glory in Micah 1 and 2. 

3. For me – that I would not give in to a spirit of fear (which I have felt heavy on my shoulders, especially last Saturday) but would have a spirit of power and love and self-control (2 Tim. 1:7). I am excited about the time I have to be with the Lord without a lot of distractions and for time to get healthy rhythms going with my body as well. Pray that I might establish some good habits so my days are fruitful and I am available to the Lord as he directs me. Pray also that I might have chances to share the good news outside of Friday mornings.”

Thank you, RFC, for your generous gift to our church!

“Pride is arrogance. Pride thinks it knows better and is better. Pride sets itself in first place. It bows to no one but itself. But, as C.S. Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity, “Pride is spiritual cancer: it eats up the very possibility of love, or contentment, or even common sense.”

Pride vs. Humility

The Bible presents pride as the opposite of humility. We see this clearly in the book of Proverbs:

“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom” (Prov. 11:2).

“Before destruction a man’s heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor” (Prov. 18:12).

“One’s pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor” (Prov. 29:23).

The proud live as though they are kings of their own kingdom, whereas the humble recognize they are creatures of the King of kings. God is God and we are not. He made us and we belong to Him. We are dependent upon God for all things—life, breath, and everything else (Acts 17:25). All we have, all that we are, is because of His grace.

When God humbles the proud, it is an act of His grace.”
