Pride is a sin in us by nature; we need to be cautioned and armed against it. All the saints make up one body in Christ, who is the Head of the body, and the common Centre of their unity. In the spiritual body, some are fitted for and called to one sort of work: others for another sort of work. We are to do all the good we can, one to another, and for the common benefit.
It would humble us if we duly thought about our powers and how far we failed adequately to improve them. But as we must not be proud of our talents, we must take heed lest, under a pretense of humility and self-denial, we are slothful in laying out ourselves for the good of others.
Whatever our gifts or situations may be, let us try to employ ourselves humbly, diligently, cheerfully, and in simplicity; not seeking our own credit or profit, but the good of many, for this world and that which is to come. but I am nothing in myself, and therefore I will lay out myself to the utmost, in the strength of the grace of Christ.
Heavenly Father I lay before your throne these petitions and praises. We honor your glory and majesty within your Grace love and compassion. Bring to us a spirit of strength , boldness , yet filled with meekness and humility so those we approach will know of your kindness and mercy through our demonstrations of love and sharing of your light. Take from us the spirit of seeking power and greatness replace it with obedience unto your word . Place us under your wings that we may know our protection is with us always and forever. This we pray in Yeshua’s name Amen and Amen.
Robert a humble obedient servant of Yeshua and His Father in heaven YA.
