    The Importance of Humility

    According to the Word of God, the Lord gives grace to those who are humble and resists those who are proud. I want to express how important it is to walk in humility and meekness. In a culture that is inundated with arrogance and selfishness, it really is like standing against the current of popularity when we are trying to be humble (2 Timothy 3). Pride is what caused Satan to fall and also is what causes people to stumble (Proverbs 3:34).

     

    The arrogance of man will be brought low and human pride humbled; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day. (Isaiah 2:17)

    The Lord even says that He hates a proud look and a haughty spirit, so this shows us as believers how seriously God looks at arrogance and how he delights in humility (Proverbs 6:16-19). Not only do we see how God honors meekness, but also Jesus (the Son of God and the Messiah) was humbled. He came down from heaven to walk among men, and to ultimately save humanity from sin and death by dying on the cross. Jesus was without a word when he was mocked and persecuted, and really demonstrated what it really means to be humble. Jesus also washed the disciples’ feet, which was the lowest thing a person could do and was meant for servants to do, especially in that time (John 13:1-17).

     

    And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross! (Philippians 2:8) 

    Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place even to lay his head.” (Luke 9:58)

    Why Humility Is Important

    1. To enter God’s presence we must come humbly to the throne: 1 Peter 5:6.
    2. God says the meek shall inherit the earth: Matthew 5:5.
    3. The proud are cast down and will be humbled: James 4:10.
    4. When we are humbled or even when we suffer, we need to remember we will ultimately reign with Christ: 2 Timothy 2:12.
    5. Jesus even humbled Himself, therefore we should also have the mind of humility: Philippians 2:5-11.

    In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

    Who, being in very nature God,

    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;

    rather, he made himself nothing

    by taking the very nature of a servant,

    being made in human likeness.

     And being found in appearance as a man,

    he humbled himself

    by becoming obedient to death—

    even death on a cross!

    Therefore God exalted him to the highest place

    and gave him the name that is above every name,

    that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

    and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,

    to the glory of God the Father.
    (Philippians 2: 5-11)
