A proud Christian?

(Spurgeon, "Grace for Grace" #2087)

Christian, be humble. If you know anything,
you have been taught it by the Holy Spirit.
If you possess anything, it has been given
you by God. You are a charity child. The clothes
on your back are furnished by the Lord's favor.
The bread in your mouth is the provision of
his love. A proud Christian is a contradiction
in terms. "What makes you better than anyone
else? What do you have that God hasn't given
you? And if all you have is from God, why boast
as though you have accomplished something
on your own?" 1 Cor. 4:7
