THE SPIRIT PROMOTES HUMILITY
Through my time of recovery from surgery, the Holy Spirit has impressed on my heart how little I really know about humility. He reminded me of the analogy Jesus gave in John 7 of the Spirit “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” (John 7:37–39).
Consider that rain which through God’s goodness falls on high peaked mountains is the same water that flows down the mountain slopes, canyons and forest lined rivers until it reaches the lowest valleys. So it is with those who are led by the Spirit (Galatians 5:18). The Spirit will lead us from the peaks of our pride, down, down, and down until there is nothing left of ‘me’ and what remains is Christ who lives in me” (2:20).
Please stay with me as I take us on a journey to discover the humility of Jesus. There was never a person who taught and lived humility like Jesus. This is one of the core virtues the church has missed. Without humility, we will make no progress in our maturity or in fulfilling our purpose.
