BE HUMBLE TO GROW
Main Text: James 4:10 – Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and He shall lift you up.
1Peter 5:6 – “Humble yourselves therefore under the right hand of God that He may exalt you in due time”.
Like in the Beatitudes, Jesus starts with humility “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven”. Jesus says that our growth as Christians starts with who we are. Humility, which is the poverty of spirit Jesus talks about in Matthew 5:3, serves as the bedrock of our growth as believers.
We cannot make any spiritual progress until we truly understand who we are in light of who God is. Seeking Him in His holiness and ourselves as sinners in need of grace is truly a matter that should help us to be humble. The God that we serve showed us the greatest humility that nobody can compete with. He led us by first showing that He is a humble God. It takes humility to win the heart of God.
The beginning of humility is seeing ourselves for who we are and seeking God’s forgiveness. Spend time in prayer to acknowledge that God is God and we are not, humility gives us the privilege blessings. We are nothing but who God says that we are in Him.
