SHM REFLECTIONS_We Need To Be More Humble!

My dear friends, how has your week been? Great, I hope. Mine has been wonderful, thank God.

For as many who are saved we are led by the Spirit, we are the sons of God; heirs of His kingdom, joint heirs with The Lord Jesus Christ. The consequence of this salvation is a new life, a clean slate to begin a glorious journey that will continue after the death of our physical bodies.

Another spin off of our saved status is that we are empowered to live above principalities, above powers, above the rulers of dark places in this world, above all manner of spiritual wickedness. In addition, we have access to His silver and gold, to His cattle upon thousands of hills. In effect, we are wired to live as salt of this earth and it’s light! No physical or spiritual powers can dominate us without our consent. Ain’t that great? Hallelujah, glory to God!

HOWEVER, I have been walking with the Lord a while now and this I know – all the above benefits can easily lead to PRIDE, of the subtle and apparent varieties! No?

My dear friends, we still look down on sinners, we preach down at them, do we not? Rather than reach out to them wen in their mess as Christ did to us, we sneer and look at them with reproving eyes! We brag about our resources, do we not? We consider the financially weak as pests, yes we do! We flaunt God’s wealth invested in us for the help of the needy with items of worldly value, do we not? Yet, we justify it by saying our God is not poor, yes we do!

AND WE WONDER WHY MANY WANDER AWAY FROM CHRIST AND HIS GOOD NEWS? We need a heavy dose of ‘humility serum’ We need constant shots of compassion inoculations, yes we do. The gospel of good news and abundant life for all is being lost in the narrative of how own salvation! I am afraid that was not the model of #JesusChrist. WE NEED TO BE MORE HUMBLE. And the frontline is your heart, dear friend!

If you agree, please pass on. We love you! Shalom.
