Humility.

Humility.

If you had seen yourself as God‘s willing servant this past week, what would have changed in your attitudes and actions? Where do you particularly want to work on this in the coming week?

And finally, another element of loving faith, it’s humble. For this you need to only look at the Beatitudes, “Blessed are the poor in spirit.” It goes on to talk about poverty of spirit, brokenness, repentance, sorrow, meekness, hunger, thirst for righteousness, blessed are the merciful, blessed are the pure in heart, blessed are the peacemakers, blessed are those persecuted for righteousness sake. You see, true faith begins in humility and in brokenness and in sorrow and in repentance and in poverty in spirit and it ends in obedience and endurance. Loving faith is like that of the little child, if you don’t come to Me, Jesus said in Matthew 18:4, as a little child, you can’t enter My Kingdom. It’s humble, obedient, and it’s a gift from God.I remind you of that tremendously haunting verse, 1 Peter 2:7, “To those who believe, He is precious.” When you love Jesus you don’t have to try to submit to Christ, he’s precious to you. You long to submit and change your life.
