Humility of Spirit



Humility of Spirit

Blessed are those who have humility of spirit...who are able to recognize their own spiritual emptiness and impoverishment...who set aside their pride and self satisfaction...and who seek The Lord in obedience and faith for forgiveness and fulfillment.

Blessed are those indeed who are poor in spirit...for their hearts shall be filled with The Holy Spirit and their treasure is The Kingdom of Heaven...

"But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble." (James 4:6)

"For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted." (Luke 14:11)

"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." (Matthew 6:21)

"He must increase, but I must decrease." (John 3:30)

"By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life." (Proverbs 22:4)

"When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." (Mark 2:17)

"But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty." (1 Corinthians 1:27)
