So much in the Kingdom of God and in our relationship with the Lord begins with our operating in humility before Him. We should be good friends with humility because the very One we profess to love came to serve HUMANITY in HUMILITY. “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” What a beautiful example Jesus set for us as His followers!
We are not fools to walk in the ways of Jesus concerning meekness. He invites us into relationship with Him relating to His gentle and lowly heart! “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, because I am lowly and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:29) It’s a great place to be! A blessed place to be. Chiefly because our Father resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. (James 4:6)
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time. – 1 Peter 5:6
God’s goodness and the face of Jesus are seen on this earth as the selfless acts of His people. You see what He looks like in one less victim of abuse, one less addict, one less dropout, and one less suicide. God’s goodness is seen in one more restoration, one more transformation, one more person walking into something better and higher for their life. As Christians, that’s our job.
