“His grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:10


The way we continually talk about our own inability is an insult to the Creator. The deploring of our own incompetence is a slander against God for having overlooked us. Get into the habit of examining in the sight of God the things that sound humble before men, and you will be amazed at how staggeringly impertinent they are. “Oh, I shouldn’t like to say I am sanctified; I’m not a saint.” Say that before God; and it means – “No, Lord, it is impossible for You to save and sanctify me; there are chances I have not had; so many imperfections in my brain and body; no, Lord, it isn’t possible.” That may sound wonderfully humble before men, but before God it is an attitude of defiance.Again, the things that sound humble before God may sound the opposite before men.

To say Thank God, I know I am saved and sanctified is in the sight of God the acme of humility, it means you have so completely abandoned yourself to God that you know He is true.

It is a slippery slope to boast, but we are to boast in what God has done in our lives, it seems. If we are too humble we diminish the power of God and it is a slander to God. If we boast and get caught up in ourselves and how much we have changed, or grown or………then we think too much of ourselves. Many of us live in a false humily not wanting to show off the power of God, because we are afraid that others might misunderstand. How do we stay on the right path? Stay connected to God through Jesus Christ, every hour of every day. He will lead us to the right standing……And let us not resort to false humility out of default and insult the sacrifice of the cross……JDV

 Never bother your head as to whether what you say sounds humble before men or not, but always be humble before God, and let Him be all in all.

There is only one relationship that matters, and that is your personal relationship to a personal Redeemer and Lord. Let everything else go, but maintain that at all costs, and God will fulfil His purpose through your life. One individual life may be of priceless value to God’s purposes, and yours may be that life.

We must remember that God will respond to our faith and it is impossible to please Him apart from faith…….If He made us a Saint, and He did, then we are Saints through Christ and He will provide the power for us to live as Saints as we stay connected to Him…..JDV
