Humility is the best!

Humility is imperative to salvation. It can be and is such an incredible blessing. Christ humbled Himself even to the cross. We can humble ourselves in our own every day life. Being humble can and does bring us closer to our God. It is NOT about us. Living by example should be the easiest thing in the world. It is not though as we can often struggle with merely being humble. We go around even if subliminally patting ourselves on the back. I see people who think they are in a good place right there where they are in their current situation. My answer is simply no way no how. Get this one right as it is vital. You and I needed a Savior to take our sins from us. He can and does do exactly that. The Bible says not even one is worthy. You cannot and will not make it on your own. No, not even close. There is one God and He loves us with all His might. Without Jesus none of us stand a chance. Pray for His forgiveness and pray for humility to take over your life. Sometimes being first is the absolute worst. The Bible says those who are last will be first and those who are first will be last. We are all made of flesh and bone and are born into sin. It is at our base foundation. ONLY Jesus can take on your sin. Nothing you do will take you to Heaven. Nothing. When you feel like you are in a good place, stop and start all over again. For you are not even close. Not even a little. Get as humble as you possibly can. Let God direct your paths. Let Him do the driving and you will see how He opens your eyes, your mind and and ultimately your heart and He works in your everyday life. Every time I feel sad or down about something God will show me persons and people who are in much worse situations. It makes me realize the multitude of blessings that I have but often take for granted. So be humble as it is the answer to all prayers and a great blessing. Get to the place where you need Jesus and want Jesus. He will make all the difference in your life. Come to the realization of the incredible magnitude of God's love. Salvation is available to all. What will you do with God's gift? Here are some verses on humility:

James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of The Lord and He will lift you up.

Phillipians 2:3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.

Proverbs 11:2 When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom.

Romans 12:16 Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.

James 3:13 Who is wise and understanding among you ? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom.

God bless always.
