Humility??? How???

Yes, God still requires you to be humble, and no, you can't hide it.

Becoming Like a Child

I think it's a misconception for many of us - that in order to be authentically humble we must position ourselves not to be seen

or heard

or felt

or respected

or appreciated

when in fact, it is through our humility that God reveals the hierarchy of Heaven.

At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a little child and set him before them, and said, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless you repent [that is, change your inner self—your old way of thinking, live changed lives] and become like children [trusting, humble, and forgiving], you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. ~ Matthew 18:1-4 Amplified Bible (AMP)

The Amplified Bible defines humble in this text as one who "turns his back on self-righteous pride and adopts a realistic self-view".

We are




appreciated by Christ himself above all others when we stay humble.

So amidst all the world's hype, how can we possibly stay humble??


Go after what is lost.

“Look at it this way. If someone has a hundred sheep and one of them wanders off, doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine and go after the one? And if he finds it, doesn’t he make far more over it than over the ninety-nine who stay put? Your Father in heaven feels the same way. He doesn’t want to lose even one of these simple believers. ~ Matthew 18:12-14 The Message Translation (MSG)

Everyone one of us has encountered someone in the past two-plus years that is feeling lost (denied, abandoned, alone) and has made the choice to live different because of it. Some have backslid into bad behavior or even chosen to live a more "spiritual" life than a holy one. God did not call us to judge. He positioned us to pursue. If you can think of one person who fits this category, I encourage you to pick up the phone and let them know they are still loved by God, and by you

Go after what is lost. You don't need a crowd. The Father sees.
