December 27, 2009 – January 2, 2010 – “The humility that Jesus speaks of in the text is not a humility on stilts, as was the Pharisee’s, parading itself before the eyes of men, that his righteousness might be seen and praised of men. Humility is before honor.” The Signs of the Times, May 16, 1892.
April 3, 2011 – April 9, 2011 – “The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.” Proverbs 15:33. Another great need of the church is humility—the deep humility of Christ. Believers need to see the necessity of working as Christ worked.
“Only by pride comes contention.” Proverbs 13:10. Even if our theology is all right if the condition of our heart is wrong then we have something to overcome; a contrite and humble spirit must develop among us or we will be just as guilty as those in 1888t.
May 6, 2012 – May 12, 2012 – “The urgent necessities that are making themselves felt in this time demand a constant education in the word of God. This is present truth. Throughout the world there should be a reform in Bible study, for it is needed now as never before.”
All who are finally saved will in this life humble themselves before God, and seek to do His will. Thus the influence that goes forth from them will be of the character that makes for peace, that strengthens piety, that increases spiritual efficiency.
Welcome to humiliations. They are like our Lord’s crown of thorns, painful to wear, and sure to be the occasion of many blows upon our heads from the reeds in the hands of our enemies. But they are a mark of honor, as well as abasement.
December 7, 2014 – December 13, 2014-Jesus gave His life for the life of the world, and He places an infinite value upon man. He desires that man shall appreciate himself, and consider his future well-being.
