Joseph: An Un-Entitled Life

Entitlement is a often used word in our culture. It’s defined as an individual’s belief that they deserve something. It may be time, resources or another consideration. Entitlement is often linked to believing that one should be provided for or thinking that other people should respect their belief or position. People with a sense of […] Continue reading…

Servant of All

I wonder how some churches and ministries would change if humility would invade our hearts!

Postures of Humility

 When we read the Bible, it’s clear that bowing our knee and kneeling before God in a posture of humility is important to God and it’s important to us in our expression of awe, wonder, love and respect for the One who created the universe and sent His son to die for our salvation. In […] Continue reading…

Kneeling Before God

I think many of the more liturgical churches have something over evangelicals. I grew up Catholic and I’m grateful for many of the things that were instilled in me before and during worship. For example, the Catholic Church taught me how to kneel—to humble myself before God. That teaching created a mindset that I believe […] Continue reading…

Humbly Serving Others

 A humble heart leads us to serving others. When we behold Jesus and the love He has for us, it leads us to change and it will lead us to look out for the needs of others, instead of our own selfish interests. Jesus put it this way, “Greater love has no one than this, […] Continue reading…

Keeping Our Eyes in Focus

In it he highlighted that humility comes from our ability to stop looking at ourselves and instead look at (or behold) Jesus. Behold Jesus is an act of love—as we gaze upon our Savior we more clearly see His love for us and, […] Continue reading…

The Disciple’s Shift

 As we read the Scriptures we see a radical shift in the Disciples. At the Last Supper we find them arguing to find out who would be the greatest (Luke 22:24–27). Then later, in Acts 3, they show a new-found humility. Peter and John heal a lame man at Gate Beautiful and when they have […] Continue reading…

Continuing to Grow in Humility

Humility is not a one time event.The way into the Kingdom of God is through humility. The way through the Kingdom of God is with humility as well.  It’s important that we clearly understand that humility isn’t something that just brings us into the Kingdom and then once we’re there we don’t need it anymore. […] Continue reading…

Understanding Greatness

 Jesus starts His ministry teaching on humility. As time passes He begins to talk about His coming betrayal, arrest, crucifixion, death, and resurrection. As He begins to talk about why He really came to earth and what it is He is really wanting to accomplish, the Scripture says something amazing: It says that the Disciples […] Continue reading…

Humility from the Beginning

Jesus began His public ministry by teaching about humility. He sits down in front of a crowd of people and says, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 5:3).” Poor in spirit is another way of saying “humble.” He’s saying that the poor in spirit, the spiritually bankrupt, […] Continue reading…
