Learn Humility from Christ

"Learn from Me--for I am gentle and humble in heart." Matthew 11:29

"Learn humility--from Christ's humility.

For lack of humility--some angels became devils! Proud sinners are fit companions, for none but proud devils!

When men glory in their pride--God stains the pride of their glory! 'The Lord Almighty planned it--to stain the pride of all glory, and to humble all who are renowned on the earth.' Isaiah 23:9
The most lowly Christian--is the most lovely Christian!

A believer is like a vessel in the sea: the more it fills--the more it sinks!
None live so humble on earth--as those who live highest in heaven. See how one of the best of saints looks upon himself--as one of the least of saints, 'Unto me who am less than the least of all saints,' said the great Paul in Ephesians 3:8.

The most holy men--are always the most lowly men. Where humility is the corner-stone, there piety is the top-stone. The coat of humility--should always be worn on the back of Christianity." "Clothe yourselves with humility." 1 Peter 5:5 (William Dyer, Christ's Famous Titles)

Grace upon grace,
