12 Weeks of unity

WEEK TWO – HUMILITY

Where To Start
Read 1 Samuel 7:3-17 and then watch the WEEK TWO video.

The humility of Jesus moves our hearts.

Philippians 2:3-5

DEVOTIONAL

WEEK 2 – HUMILITY

Jesus left heaven and came to earth to serve. Jesus is fully God and became fully human as well. Jesus was sinless and humbled Himself, being perfectly obedient. He died on the cross to pay the price for our sins. There will never be a greater demonstration of love and humility. Jesus became sin, and by His grace we receive a perfect pardon and everlasting life when we put our trust in Him. The suffering servant is alive, defeating death through His resurrection. The name of Jesus is the name above all names. Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus teaches us about humility and victory.

We have peace and unity with God forever because Jesus was faithful.

Be teachable and learn how to walk humbly with God. Listening to Jesus leads to humility. The Good Shepherd laid down His life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for one another. Because Jesus loves us, we love one another. Because Jesus forgave us, we forgive one another. We have a new humility in the Lord, and a new basis for how we serve one another. May our attitudes be the same as Jesus.

In a me-first world, consider others first and consistently love your neighbor.

The kingdom of God is based on humility. Eli walked with God, but his sons were selfish and stubborn. Samuel, on the other hand, learned from Eli and began to listen closely to God. Samuel guided a nation to God because of his humble devotion. Pride leads to strife, division, grudges, loneliness, bitterness, excuses, finger-pointing, and looking down upon others. This is the exact opposite of Jesus. We need to stop rationalizing our behavior and start imitating our Lord. May it start in our hearts, then transform our homes, and build up our church family too. Many people say they want to unite, but there will be no unity without humility. Let us offer God far more than lip service. It is time for healing and restoration.

Just Choose Hope

 

HOPE POINT

If you want meaningful and hope-filled relationships, be humble. 

Additional Scripture Reading: Philippians 2, 1 Samuel 1-3, James 4

REFLECTION QUESTIONS

What does it look like to be teachable?

 

How much time do you want to spend each day listening to God?

How will you drop your pride to unite with others at home and church?

PRAYER

Gracious God, You are so kind and wise. Jesus, thank You for being faithful and teaching us how to serve. We want to walk humbly with You and abide daily. We turn from our pride and trust You. Unless You build the house, we will labor in vain. We ask You to help us to persevere and not give up. Jesus You are the way, and we pray in Your name, amen.
