Colossians 3:12 “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”
Ephesians 4:2 “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”
Micah 6:8 “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
When Jesus came to Capernaum, a centurion, an unlikely man, asked for his help to heal his servant (Matthew 8:5-13). The centurion commander of a Roman army during that period was a significant high-ranking official in command. This centurion, with the knowledge of who Jesus was and what Jesus has been doing, his miracles and teachings, approached Jesus even though he was of someone with authority, one of the very least people that would seek Jesus for help. Though it could have been easy for him to get all the help he wanted, this centurion did not abuse his authority. The centurion humbly requested the help of Jesus. He did not use his high position to command Jesus to heal his servant. He was aware that Jesus was greater than him. He respected and acknowledged the power of Jesus to heal people. Jesus was pleased by the faith of the centurion. And because of that, his request was granted. Jesus healed his servant from a distance.
Like the centurion, you can be humble as well. God created you to be humble. Being humble pleases the Lord. There is a blessing in humility because God blesses a humble person. Being humble does not mean losing your character, your personality, and confidence, and staying humble means fixing your eyes on Jesus and following him in treating others with respect and sincerity. To be humble is to put God first before you in everything that you. Staying humble is positioning yourself before God to accept his blessings, grace, and provision.
When you are humble, you submit to God and those around you whom he has authority over you. Staying humble is being like Jesus to others.
