Often we think of humility as knocking ourselves down in service, in following, in waiting and reacting – but Jesus was BOLD and KNOWLEDGEABLE about who He was… and Jesus KNEW the job He needed to do. We too are to LISTEN to ACT. Sometimes we think humility is being a sheep but really if we use Jesus as an example, humility is ALSO seeing the shepherd within us… not always acting sheepishly but being more shephardly.
Serve Jesus with all your heart soul strength AND MIND….
Let the Holy Spirit guide and move you for the sake of those around you.
Jesus said: “you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses – to the ends of the earth.”
Peter said (recorded in Acts) to the people amazed at the workings of the Holy Spirit:
“God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it. Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.”
“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
