1 Peter 5:5 KJV — Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
Reflection on God’s Word for Today - 02 Nov 2023
The doctrine of mutual submission is not popular in the various world cultures. But this is a defining attitude in the kingdom of God and one that Jehovah expects His children to adhere to. Humility is a virtue that Christ modelled for us all to emulate and God gave us grace to do it without struggling. If you are in Christ you must draw upon that grace and exercise yourself in humility towards all. Your position in life doesn't matter, be willing, like Jesus, to stoop down from your high pedestal and condescend to folks down under in the love of Jehovah. To be proud is to be God's enemy and you don't want to be accounted as an enemy of the most high God. It is a dangerous place to be and can only end in shame and ignominy. Choose today what type of disciple you want to be and walk in a way as to please your Saviour and Lord.
Pray: Dear Holy Spirit, I submit completely to You, teach me to be humble in all my ways. #Mok
