Pride or Humility

In the epistle to the Philippians chapter 2 and verses 5 through 8, we are shown how Jesus humbled himself and became a man on this earth. He was obedient to his Father even to the point of dying on a cross. He was so confident in who he was and in his relationship with his Father, that he was able to humble himself and wash his disciples’ feet (John 13:1-17). In that passage Jesus also told us we should copy his example of humility: “If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you” (John 13:14-15; KJV).

How often growth in our Christian walk is hindered by pride; our unwillingness to change, to be obedient to his word, or to throw ourselves completely over on him in humility at his feet. We think we know better; we limit God or we are afraid of what people will think of us. “God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5:5). James wrote that if we humble ourselves before God, he will lift us up (James 4:10). God dwells with the humble and teaches them his ways (Isa 57:15; Ps 25:9).

Look how David humbled himself and danced (twirled and spun) before God in praise and adoration; no fear of what people might think of him (2 Sam 6:14). Look how God blessed David and called him a man after his own heart (Acts 13:22).

Abandon yourself at God’s feet and give him your all, nothing held back and see him bless you.
