Humility.

August 3, 2012

So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.
~ 1 Peter 5:6

We only become more when we willingly become less.

Less of the person we were and more of the person God intends us to be.

Less of us reacting based off of feelings of the flesh and more reactions motivated from the silent whisper of the Spirit.

Less actions for our own personal benefits and more actions that will benefit His kingdom.

As we die to ourselves, we become more alive. Not because of anything we do, but because everything the Cross offers.

Through the Cross and a collaboration of our choice to surrender, we allow God to do what only He can do and what Christ came to do on the Cross.

And that is to change us more and more into Holy reflections of His love and grace.

Our efforts can’t reflect such beauty, only His Spirit alive in us and thriving into the world can.

In those moments, where we do His work with humility and love, we have the ability to touch eternity.

Why?

Because in those moments, we touch and soften the hardest hearts.
We bring light into the darkest nights. Through our humility, we become the change that God sees in the world.
