Humility – Col Stringer

Sarah ColemanSermon Notes0 Comments

Acts 20:24 But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God. 

Finish your course with joy. 

Proverbs 13:10 Pride leads to conflict; those who take advice are wise. 

An insecure person is a proud person. They think about themselves. Pride produces conflict.

James 4:6 And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 

Get rid of self promotion. Go the way of humility.

1 Peter 5:6-7 So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart;do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do,and he will show you which path to take.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!

Fruit, not works. Your spirit is meek and humble.  

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

This is who you are in the spirit. You are loving. This is the real you.

It takes humility to receive the grace of God. 

Romans 5:17 For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.
