Pursue Humility!

The world teaches us to be ambitious, competitive, and proud. However, God desires that we pursue humility, brokenness, and submission. Colossians 3:12 says, “So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience…” Don’t mistake my point; yes, I am striving to be great on earth but being great in God’s eyes is completely different to man. Jesus said in Matthew 20:26-27, “If one of you wants to become great, then he must serve you like a servant…..” You see, greatness is not found in position. Greatness is not found in the exercise of power. Greatness is not found in being served. Greatness is not found in commanding others. Greatness is not found in wealth. Greatness is not found in intellect. In Jesus’ Kingdom, greatness is found in serving and that my friend is why God desires that we pursue humility, brokenness, and submission. So today remember Jesus gave us the cross to remind us that the path of obedience, the path to greatness, the path of glory is only found in serving others while serving God.
