Humility or Hell
“He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.” Psalm 25:9 (NIV)
If we are not humbled under the headship of the Lord Jesus Christ, our conceited hearts will lead us to hell. A boastful man can not accept help or guidance, but a humble man is willfully able to accept Christ’s grace and freely learn of Him. A man who is self-absorbed with a false sense of self-importance, will go to his grave unrepentant unless he encounters the Lord.
Satan wants us to remain unteachable and unaware of our own need for a Savior. He is content to lead the best of us into self-centered religious legalism, because the focus on self, not on the grace of Jesus Christ, stands against humility.
Let’s pray today that we may resist the temptation selfishness and find humility in Christ.
