Humility: A Great Virtue Part 3

Humility: A Great Virtue Part 3

The thinking of mankind is not on the same plane as divine thought.  In that truth Christians can take great comfort, for Scripture states concerning God … "For my thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isa 55:8-9 NIV).  Those who by faith have placed their trust in the finished work of Christ on the Cross need not depend on their own understanding to be the directive and guide in life.

The Christ-Life

Scripture reveals that a believer is a new creation in Christ Jesus -- that is far more than outward characteristics. In fact, at the moment of salvation the individual physically is the same person, but spiritually, that inner man, is new.  The challenge of the Christ-life is to learn the skills of living the spiritual life so that the inward qualities of one’s spiritual transformation become evident personally.

We often hear repeated the challenge for Christians to be an active participant in taking the gospel throughout the world.  That message came from the lips of Christ as He spoke to His disciples.
