God’s Grace – Humility Brings Grace

Humility brings Grace

Don’t earn grace – path to more Hard to be humble Direct link from Grace to humility Proverbs 3:34 CSB He mocks those who mock, but gives grace to the humble. James 4:6 CSB But he gives greater grace. Therefore he says: God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. He who Humbles Himself Used 4 time by Jesus lay aside greatness for dependency – like children recognition – pharisees loved it – instead serve Matthew 23:11–12 CSB The greatest among you will be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. He who Humbles Himself honor for others over self justifying our lives instead of leaning on God’s mercy Humility Turns God’s Head Manasseh – wicked king 2 Chronicles 33:12–13 CSB When he was in distress, he sought the favor of the Lord his God and earnestly humbled himself before the God of his ancestors. He prayed to him, and the Lord was receptive to his prayer. He granted his request and brought him back to Jerusalem, to his kingdom. So Manasseh came to know that the Lord is God. Humility Turns God’s Head humility is the sail 4 lessons – even in the midst of gross sin – God still speaks God knows how to humble us Our heart can move God’s heart our humble example impacts generations – Josiah Jesus our Example-Phil Warnings on Pride original sin – hides in each of us Arrogance – knowing the truth is not enough1 Corinthians 8:1 CSB Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that “we all have knowledge.” Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. Warnings on Pride make more of ourselves – we sit on the throne false humility is a cover“Humility is not thinking less of yourself: it is not thinking of yourself at all” C.S. Lewis
