Believe - Chapter 30 - Humility - September 4th, 2016
Key Idea: I choose to esteem others above myself.
Key Verses: “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” (Philippians 2:3 – 4)
Key Question: What does it mean to value others before myself?
What better person to teach us about humility than the person we are passionately seeking to be like — Jesus, himself.
John 13:6 – 9: “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.” “Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”
(Key Application) Humiliation is not the same as humility.
(Key Application) Christ-like humility freesyou up to build others up.
