If God is humbling you, it may just be so that He can use you.
A humble leader knows they are nothing and Christ is everything, so, they will not seek personal vindication, but they will fight boldly for Christ’s honour, gospel and church.
We must decrease and Christ must increase because Jesus stands as King above all.
Does it glorify Christ?
In a world that is riddled with pride & arrogance, there is one thing in all the earth that gains the sovereign gaze of a gracious God...
Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast save in the death of Christ, my God
Pride puts us in His place. Humility puts Him in our place.
The pride that says we are good enough will destroy us eternally. The humility that says we need God’s help will save us eternally.
True greatness is found in sacrificing your importance for the kingdom.
Knowledge tells us our rights. Love tells us whether to use or forgo our rights. Knowledge without love puffs up. Knowledge with love builds up.
