Humility

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli   in Christian Life, Social

Humility is ranked #1 in the kingdom (Matt18:1-4) after which only are love, faith & hope. What’s more, when God sees a lack of holiness in us, it can be compensated with humility because God, who is love, “covers a multitude of sin.”

QUESTION: Would Christ love to see ourselves placed above the others?

Let’s get the fundamentals right!

1Cor 12:28 NIV: And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues.

And

1Cor 11:3 NIV: Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

Mat 10:41 NIV: Anyone who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and anyone who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man will receive a righteous man’s reward.

Rom 13:7 NIV: Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

C.S. Lewis on equality:

“There is no spiritual sustenance in flat equality. When equality is treated not as a medicine or a safety-gadget, but as an ideal, we begin to breed that stunted and envious sort of mind which hates all superiority. That mind is the special disease of democracy, as cruelty and servility are the special diseases of privileged societies. It will kill us all if it grows unchecked. The man who cannot conceive a joyful and loyal obedience on the one hand, nor an unembarrassed and noble acceptance of that obedience on the other – the man who has never even wanted to kneel or to bow – is a prosaic barbarian. Where men are forbidden to honor a king, they honor millionaires, athletes, or film-stars instead — even famous prostitutes or gangsters.”

Lucifer BTW was the first one to demand equal rights.  Equality, egalitarianism is luciferian.

Luke 14:11 NIV: For everyone who exalts himself [above his limits] will be humbled, and he who humbles himself [below his limits] will be exalted.”

Humility is knowing our station.

The exhortation to servant-hood is directed at god-servants, not at those being served for the purpose of usurping.
