Humility

God wants to heal and restore your relationships – Chip Ingram

God wants to heal and restore your relationships – Chip Ingram

I know for me, going back the person I’ve bad-mouthed or lied to is absolutely humiliating! But isn’t it interesting that “humiliating” has the same root word as “humility”? Part of humility is taking responsibility for my sin and asking forgiveness even when it doesn’t feel good. God wants to heal and restore your relationships, but it’s not easy.

Price of Revival – Roy Hession

Price of Revival – Roy Hession

We sometimes talk about the price of revival, and we need to be very careful as to what we mean when we speak like this. We may place that price so high that we put revival right beyond the reach of the ordinary run of mortals. Maybe that is our way of attempting to justify God, that He has not yet, apparently, given the revival His people need. … There is without doubt a price to be paid for revival, but it is not of necessity the long nights of prayer or excruciating sacrifices, but of simply humbling pride to repent of sin.

How a Christian Should Live – David Livingstone

How a Christian Should Live – David Livingstone

Do not think me mad. It is not to make money that I believe a Christian should live. The noblest thing a man can do is, just humbly to receive, and then go amongst others and give.

Repenting and Humbling Ourselves – JC Ryle

Repenting and Humbling Ourselves – JC Ryle

If we have already repented in time past, let us go on repenting to the end of our lives. There will always be sins to confess and infirmities to deplore, so long as we are in the body. Let us repent more deeply, and humble ourselves more thoroughly, every year. Let every returning birthday find us hating sin more, and loving Christ more. He was a wise old saint who said, “I hope to carry my repentance to the very gate of heaven.”
