True humility rejoices in the greatness of Jesus.

1 Peter 5:5 ‘…be clothed with humility: for God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble.’

True humility rejoices in the greatness of Jesus;

it relies upon His strength and not our own;

it seeks to do His will and not to elevate ourselves;

it is always Christ centred and never self-centred.

Humility does not concern itself with self-importance;

it does not need to seek recognition for what it does;

it is always willing to serve;

and it has no fear in regard to what people think.

In Christ we are free to take the lowest place

because He has lifted us from the depth of our sin

to be royalty in the household of God.

His grace is our sufficiency;

His approval is our desire.
