We must love ourselves in order for us to carry out the mandate to bring God’s glory into the world to the lost. In order for us to love ourselves, we have to accept that God loves us sacrificially, redemptively, and unconditionally. We must also cleanse our hearts by acknowledging and confessing our sins so that we will not judge the lost; realizing that we too were once lost, void of proper direction. When we acknowledge and confess our sins, we spiritually mature to realize that we need the Lord and we realize how much He loves us. We become fit to be used of God to bring His glory into the earth to the lost.
