Positively Impacting Your Life with God’s Truths May 2016

Jesus’ Humility

Greetings. I hope you can receive hope after you read how humility can give you peace and blessings. The first thing to know is that our first example of humility was Jesus. When we are not proud we allow God to work in our situations and our lives begin to be blessed. God expects us to depend on Him for everything in our life.

Biblical humility has degrees: first is the modesty that opposes vanity. At a deeper level that opposes humility to pride it is. Humble, then, which acknowledges that it has received from God all he has: “what do you have that you have not received from God? And if you received it why do you boast as if you had not received it? (1 Cor 4,7). The humble recognizes that it is nothing without God: “I can do nothing without Him.” But incomparably more profound is still the humility of Christ, who emptied himself to death on the cross for our redemption.

Jesus is the humble Messiah announced by the prophets: “Behold, your king is coming, just and victorious, humble and riding on a donkey” (Zech 9.9). Matthew applies this passage Jesus (21.1-4). In his life, he has presented himself humble, totally dependent on His dear Father, fully live the joy of their relationship with Him, in entire dependence on Him, subject at all times to His Father, Lord of the universe

We must be like Jesus who said, “learn from me to be meek and humble of heart” (Mt 11: 25-30). Your life will be impacted positively when you start to think more about what God wants from you and how you can help others. And every day you will feel more the peace that you were seeking.

God bless you, dear reader and until next time…
