Let This Mind Be In You-Part 3

The third attribute we find in (Phil 2:8) as it pertains to the mind of Christ is: He humbled himself.  Jesus operated in humility during his time on earth; and I think the first thing I need to do is define humility.  Humility is characterized by modesty or meekness in behavior, attitude and spirit.  Another word which I think of when I hear humility is meekness, because a believer that’s meek will exhibit humility; and we know the word of God says “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth”.  Thus, when a believer exhibits true humility, it gets the attention of heaven, because humble Christians are hard to come by.  Humility doesn’t come naturally; it comes about supernaturally, when Christians submit to the power of God.  Humility is so important to God that (1Pt. 5:6) says “Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God that he may exalt you in due time”.  You see when we bow down our lives totally to the will of God, even as Jesus did, He eventually lifts us up and causes us to be what He desires for us to be.  However, the exaltation won’t come until the humility is evident on earth, in hell, and in heaven.  You see when true humility is evident, people can tell, demons can tell, and God certainly can tell.  Finally, humble Christians are those who are approachable, teachable, gentle, and loving; humble Christians don’t think too highly of themselves, neither do they operate in low self esteem, but they look for balance in their lives.
