Nine Reasons Why Humility is Essential in the Christian Life

1. Humility is a prerequisite to revival: 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves & pray & seek my face & turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven & will forgive their sin & will heal their land.”

2. Humility is necessary to receive God’s guidance & instruction: Psalm 25:9, “He guides the humble in what is right & teaches them his way.”

3. Humility is foundational to God’s sustaining grace: Psalm 147:6, “The LORD sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground.”

4. Personal revival begins w/personal humility & brokenness: Isaiah 57:15, “For this is what the high & lofty One says-- he who lives forever, whose name is holy: "I live in a high & holy place, but also w/him who is contrite & lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly & to revive the heart of the contrite.”

5. God esteems (honors) those who are humble & have a high view of scripture: Isaiah 66:2, “Has not my hand made all these things, & so they came into being?" declares the LORD. "This is the one I esteem: he who is humble & contrite in spirit, & trembles at my word.”

6. God responds to the prayers of those who humble themselves before Him: Daniel 10:12, “Then he continued, "Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding & to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, & I have come in response to them.”

7. Jesus is our supreme example of humility though He had every reason not to be: Matthew 11:29, “Take my yoke upon you & learn from me, (why?) for I am gentle & humble in heart, & you will find rest for your souls.”

8. Humility is at the heart of a God-honoring life: 1 Peter 3:8, “Finally, all of you, live in harmony w/one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate & humble. 9Do not repay evil w/evil or insult w/insult, but w/blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.”

9. Grace is given to the humble but God opposes us when we’re filled w/pride: 1 Peter 5:5, “…All of you, clothe yourselves w/humility toward one another, because, ‘God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.’ 6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.”
