“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, HE HUMBLED HIMSELF and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”. (Philippians 2:5-11 NKJV)
Romans 12:10 KJVS tells us to, Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another.
+The prideful makes themselves better than others and put themselves higher than others.
6 But he gives more GRACE. Therefore He says, God RESISTS the PROUD, but gives GRACE unto the HUMBLE.
7 SUBMIT yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Draw near to God, and HE will DRAW NEAR to you…
Then 1 Peter 5:5-6 advice us in this manner,
Likewise, you younger, SUBMIT yourselves unto the elder. Yes, all of you be SUBJECT one to another, and be clothed with HUMILITY: for God resists the PROUD, and gives GRACE to the HUMBLE.
HUMBLE yourselves therefore UNDER the MIGHTY HAND of God, that he may EXALT you in due time:
+Whosoever God exalts is humbled , but whosoever exalts himself is still proud.
God Empowers the Humble
James 4:6 articulate it this way:
But He (God) gives more GRACE. Therefore He says, God resists the proud, but gives GRACE unto the HUMBLE.
1 Peter 5:5
…be clothed with HUMILITY: for God resists the proud, and gives GRACE to the HUMBLE.
GRACE: God’s Spiritual and Divine influence upon our heart that is reflected in our lives. God’s acceptance of us with His given benefits, favor, and gift with joy, liberality, pleasure and all such like things.
2 Peter 1:2
GRACE and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
+May we always remain in HUMILITY and HUMBLED in all things for the glory of Our Almighty Lord Jesus Christ, and may we always grow in His GRACE, and be found in His LOVE and Perfect Will. In the All Powerful Name of Jesus! Amen!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus Loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust, and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.
[Jude 1:24-25 NKJV]
