WE ARE THE ELECT OF GOD
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on humility. Colossians 3:12
I believe humility comes from the wisdom of knowing God, who He is and understanding the frailness of our existence before Him. We came into this world with nothing, naked from our mother's womb and as far as I can tell we will leave the same way!
The world in its arrogance and boastful pride of life is barreling down the broad road that leads to Hell, unaware of the eternal danger they are in and like Satan, so prideful to think they are little gods gathering riches in this life, never seeing the poor of this world in their daily struggles. Humility comes from serving others, laying down ones life for those in need.
As servants of the Most High we are called to go into all the world with an eternal gospel, healing the sick, casting out demons and giving of ourselves to those who are desperate and needy. The absolute glory of God rests on those who in humility surrender to the call of a disciple, who lays down his life, takes up his cross and follows Jesus into a world filled with darkness and disease with the light of His glorious gospel!
Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will lift you up. James 4:10
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
