Humility Redefined

To so many believers today , Humility is synonymous with respect , while a vast majority of others in the body of Christ believe humility is being poor, or better still being simple. Well, none of this define true Humility, so the question is ; Are you saying we shouldn’t be respectful, or simple. No! Am saying it doesn’t make you humble. The greatest example or model given to us of humility in scriptures is the Jesus Christ.

Phil.2:5 – 6

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:..

From the Model of Jesus, Humility is of the mind, it is more of the  inward than outward, for Jesus thought it not robbery to be equal with God.

There are many who are respectful but Proud, they draw to you with their mouths but their Heart is full of pride, on the outward, you see them as Angels but inwardly they are demons. So also there are many Proud Paupers; Poverty is never a sign a person is Humble

From the life of Jesus and through the revelation of the Phillipians Chapter 2,  I will give three definitions I strongly believe is the true definition of Humility.

Definition 1: Humility is thinking more of others than your self.

The Definition looks strange but it is the truth, Phil.2:3, tells us to esteem others better than ourselves, which means we shouldn’t be self-consumed, self,-centred or self conscious. One True definition of pride is self centeredness, as long the world revolves to please you, you will always have issues with people. Jesus didn’t think about himself, he was consumed by our sufferings and pains, he didn’t think of his Status as God, he didn’t think of the shame. Self conscious people are proud people, and they are in two categories; the Arrogant and the Shy. Its all about them, they are Proud….
