A Final Word on Humility

Tomorrow—Sunday, July 19—I’ll be in Columbus, Ohio, at Hillview FWB Church in the morning services and at Heritage FWB Church in the evening.  If you live in the Columbus area, come on out!  Jeff Nichols will be ably filling the pulpit at The Donelson Fellowship where we’re continuing our 100-vese project by looking at Ephesians 5:18-20.

Today I want to post a last word from Andrew Murray on the subject of humility.  Murray suggests that the blessings of perfect peace and overflowing joy are sometimes like charming objects behind a department store window.  We’d like to reach out and grasp them, but there’s a thick sheet of plate glass in the way.  And that plate glass represents pride.  

“Humility,” wrote Murray, “is simply the disposition which prepares the soul for living on trust.”  Pride refuses to let God be what He is and must be—our All in All.  Humility, on the other hand, “is the secret of the truest happiness, of a joy that nothing can destroy.”
 
“We shall find that the deepest humility is the secret of the truest happiness, of a joy that nothing can destroy.”
