Humility is vital
For our soulís survival,
Who can come before an Almighty Holy God,
Except on bowed knees and
And an obedient heart,
To do His will!
CHRIST, the only beloved SON OF GOD
Is our model of Humility!
HE disrobed HIMSELF of HIS GODHEAD
To obey the will of HIS HEAVENLY FATHER,
Incarnated as a man,
He humbly died on the CROSS for our sins!
He enabled us to be forgiven and reconciled to His Heavenly Father!
HIS humble self-sacrifice won for us
Salvation and eternal life!
Christ shows us that the way to Perfection,
Is not through self effort,
Or chalking up our own good works;
These are futile because they are vain-glorious!
The way to perfection is
Descent to HUMILITY!
HUMILITY is when we throw ourselves at the feet of CHRIST,
Begging for HIS Mercy!
Acknowledging and repenting our sins;
Surrendering to complete dependence on our Saviour for Salvation!
Confident in HIS omnipotent power as our Sovereign LORD to forgive and heal us.
It is when we lose our sense of self importance,
And allow our triune GOD to take complete charge
Of our lives,
It is when we feel HIS GREATNESS
And our littleness!
When the in-dwelling Christ increases
And we decrease!
That we can humbly say,
MY GOD, HOW GREAT THOU ART!
Humility is our LORDíS WAY to PERFECTION,
HIS WAY to HOLINESS,
THE narrow Gate-way to HEAVEN!
Then the fruit of THE HOLY SPIRIT
Will be manifested in us!
Christís indwelling will bring
The fruit of LOVE, PEACE, JOY,
Which we are asked by CHRIST, to humbly share with our neighbours!
