Hello Church Family and Visitors, This Sunday we will begin our study on Humility during the discipleship training time (5 pm). We will be focusing primarily on what Scripture says in regards to this important subject but will also be using a book to guide our in-depth study. The book Humility is by C.J. Mahaney and he does a wonderful job defining humility, illustrating how we succumb to pride, and how to apply the gospel each day when we struggle.
It is vital that churches have leaders that cultivate humility. I know that I am a prideful man but hope that by God's grace that humility will be cultivated in my home, in our church, and in our workplaces.
God repeatedly uses people throughout Scripture to teach us about humility and pride. Throughout our lives, we fail and we see our need for God's grace more. Also, along the way, we succeed in life, and it is in our successes that we need to be humble more than ever. We will look forward to each week applying the gospel and cultivating humility among our children, towards our spouses, in the workplace, among neighbors, and in our church.
All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time (From 1 Peter 5).
