    Humility

 

Humility is vital

For our soul 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

By becoming our SUBSTITUTE

And died on the CROSS for our sins;

HE was obedient and  completely surrendered

To His HEAVENLY FATHERís will

To enable us to be reconciled to Almighty Holy GOD

WHO detested SIN;

HIS holy self-sacrifice won us

Salvation and eternal life.

 

Christ shows us that the way to Perfection

Is not to clamber up with our own effort

Through our own good works

Which is futile because it is vain-glory;

But the way to perfection is

Descent to HUMILITY!

 

It is when we throw ourselves at the feet of CHRIST

Begging for HIS loving Compassion

Repenting our sins;

Surrendering to complete trust in our Saviour

Confident in HIS omnipotent power as our Sovereign LORD;

It is when we lose our sense of self importance

And allow our triune GOD to have 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!

 

This is our LORD'S WAY to PERFECTION

HIS WAY to HOLINESS

THE narrow 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 share with our neighbours!
