A Christian’s Life of Humility

Written by: John Sernaque

Call to Worship


Romans 8: 1

8:1 [There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Great Controversy 477.2

While the Christian’s life will be characterized by humility, it should not be marked with sadness and self-depreciation. It is the privilege of everyone so to live that God will approve and bless him. It is not the will of our heavenly Father that we should be ever under condemnation and darkness. There is no evidence of true humility in going with the head bowed down and the heart filled with thoughts of self. We may go to Jesus and be cleansed, and stand before the law without shame and remorse. {GC 477.2}

While we wait for the second advent of Christ Jesus, we are to wait humbly yet cheerfully. What greater joy can one have than to see Jesus Christ coming in the clouds to raise us into His Heavenly Kingdom. What a day of rejoicing that will be. But while still in this world, there is no need for condemnation. If we live daily the life that Jesus commands us, He will cleanse us of all unrighteousness. Now that is a promise you can live your life by. Let go of any shame and remorse and surrender your life to Jesus. Walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Let go, and let God.

Dear God,

We thank You for all Your love. For allowing us to come to You as sinners, just the way we are, and yet You still call us Your children. We thank You for Your compassion and mercy, for Your long suffering. We love You with all our hearts and cheerfully and excitedly wait for You to take us home. We pray for Your strength and power from on high to help us walk not after the flesh, but rather, after the Spirit. We thank You for all You continue to do for us. We are sorry and humbly repent of our sins. We pray for forgiveness and that You cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Save us dear Lord that we may be amongst Your children of the Royal Family in Your Heavenly Kingdom. All these things we pray, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
