Book Description

About The Book

This book tells how to become a humble Christian and discovers the beauty of holiness. Drawing heavily from the life of Jesus, the perfect model of humility and surrender of the self, it makes a call for Church leaders to live humility in their personal lives. Highlighting the importance of humility, it describes how Jesus was humble, and how we also can become humble. It argues that without humility, there can be no true abiding in God's presence or experience of His favour and the power of His spirit. Without it there can be no abiding faith or love or joy or strength.

THERE are three great motives that urge us to humility. It becomes me as a creature, as a sinner, as a saint. The first we see in the heavenly hosts, in unfallen man, in Jesus as Son of Man. The second appeals to us in our fallen state, and points out the only way through which we can return to our right place as creatures. In the third we have the mystery of grace, which teaches us that, as we lose ourselves in the overwhelming greatness of redeeming love, humility becomes to us the consummation of everlasting blessedness and adoration.
In our ordinary religious teaching, the second aspect has been too exclusively put in the fore ground, so that some have even gone to the ex treme of saying that we must keep sinning if we are indeed to keep humble. Others again have thought that the strength of self-condemnation is the secret of humility. And the Christian life has suffered loss, where believers have not been distinctly guided to see that, even in our relation as creatures, nothing is more natural and beautiful and blessed than to be nothing, that God may be all; or where it has not been made clear that it is not sin that humbles most, but grace, and that it is the soul, led through its sinfulness to be occupied with God in His wonderful glory as God, as Creator and Redeemer, that will truly take the lowest place before Him.
