  • No man who has been humbled before God is self-justifying, self-protective, or self-confident.

  • Humility is not only the start of the Christian life; it is the start of everything godly in the Christian life.

How Does God Humble Us?
  • He can send us a problem we can’t handle to expose our helplessness.
  • He can give us a command we won’t obey to expose our self-centeredness.
  • He can arrange an outcome we can’t control to expose our sinfulness.
  • He can show us a God we can’t comprehend to expose our finiteness.
