HERE: Day 27

Matthew 18:1-20

If any of you have heard me speak in recent days, you may have heard me teach on humility. I believe it was the primary characteristic of Jesus’ life, and it is God’s desire for us to be like Him. Humility is foundational to our faith and paramount for the world to see an accurate representation of Jesus. Though the number one characteristic of Jesus, humility is the most un-preached sermon in the Church today.

Humility is the displacement of self for the enthronement of God. Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but rather thinking of yourself less.

Here’s what the Bible says about what humility looks like:

Humble Women Prioritize and Serve One Another.

Galatians 5: 13 “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

Humble Women Instruct One Another.

Romans 15:14 “I myself am convinced, my brothers and sisters, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with knowledge and competent to instruct one another.

Humble Women Confess and Pray for One Another.

James 5:16 “Therefore, confess your sins and pray for each other so that you may be healed.”

Humble Women Instruct One Another.

Colossians 3:13 “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgives.

Humble Women Honor One Another.

Romans 12:10 “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

Everything in today’s reading has to do with humility. We will never be great in the Kingdom, rid ourselves of the things that are harmful to our walk, leave the 99 to go after the 1, work through relationship struggles, forgive, nor experience power in our lives and prayers without HUMILITY.

Most of us are so grateful for and are asking often for God’s grace. We want it from Him and others, and yet often refuse to offer it to others; and yet the Bible says God gives grace to the HUMBLE.

Lord, teach us to walk in humility; You on the throne of our hearts,

and others as the recipients of His love. In Jesus’ name.
