It is easy to be busy thinking we are serving the LORD and pleasing Him, not knowing that we are far from it. Humility is one of those things that when we lack, we fail to please God no matter what other efforts we are making. Humility is precious to God. Jesus said in Matt 18:2-3 And He called a child Himself and set him before them and said, 'Truly I say unto you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.'
Phil 2:5-11 - Teaches to have an attitude of humility - like Jesus.
Humility is a Key Because:
Humility opens the door to:
- salvation - healing - the power of the Holy Spirit - speaking in tongues - the anointing of God. amongst other conditions like servanthood, receiving a father, learning from another person, listening to a man - full time ministry - ability to raise funds for the work of God. - visitation to all kinds of places - - prayer. One of the greatest demonstrations of humility b'cos you are openly saying you need help - ability to interact with souls - counseling. to say the same thing over and over to people who may not listen or obey - ability to plant churches - ability to witness on the street - ability to share dreams - being led by the spirit - singing in public - worship as you should, cry out, kneel, lie prostrate - evangelism - missoinary work: to go to a place to become a missionary where you do know anything
