In thinking about Jesus humbling himself (Phil. 2:8), we know that 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”. Thus, 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. When true humility is evident, people can tell, demons can tell, and God certainly can tell. We don’t have to broadcast it when we are truly humble because people will see it. 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 through the power of God.
