“For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
Luke 14:11

Being a Christian is all about following Jesus, the one who laid down His life for us. It is all about knowing Him, trusting and obeying Him, and becoming like Him. We need to understand the humility of Jesus. He said:

“Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
Matthew 11:28-29

Jesus was a real man who had plenty of fire and courage — He wasn’t a soft wuss of a guy. He cleaned the temple out with a whip and told the religious leaders they were a nest of snakes. His humility didn’t mean He was passive and always softly spoken.

St Augustine said, “For those who would learn God’s ways, humility is the first thing, the second thing, and humility is the third thing”. Peter said in his epistle:

“Serve each other with humble spirits, for God gives special blessings to those who are humble, but sets himself against those who are proud.”
1 Peter 5:5-6

Did you know that Almighty God has commended humility and delights to see it in his people? The Prophet Isaiah says:

“The high and lofty one who inhabits eternity, the Holy One, says this: ‘I live in that high and holy place where those with contrite, humble spirits dwell; and I refresh the humble and give new courage to those with repentant hearts.”
Isaiah 57:15

To be humble means to recognize we are not self-sufficient, rather that we depend on God for all we need. All we have comes from Him: our lives, our salvation, our hope, our strengths and abilities. Everything is given by God, and nothing is our own.
