Seeking God through Humility

Luke 14:7-11                 January 10, 2016                     Link for audio/video/manuscript

While it may be appropriate for the best musician to get the "first chair" in a high school band or college orchestra – it is not in the kingdom of God. Where God reigns “the last will be first, and the first last" (Matthew 20:16). Yet this is so far from where we live. By nature we are a selfish prideful people. But humbleness is a character quality of the heart, which reflects the character of God’s heart we were created for – and it is in our Lord Jesus that we see the perfect revelation of the character of humility that God desires from us. It is in following Christ that we will know the Spirit-empowered humility that leads us down the path towards revival and renewal in our constant desperate need for a deeper relationship with God.
