A Short On Love & Humility

Humility: The having a humble opinion of one's self. A deep sense of moral littleness. Modesty, lowliness of mind. Meekness.

Haughtiness, pride, arrogance, lead to destruction. These fleshly qualities ultimately will lead to the undoing of any who will practice ( do ) them. And this applies to all, no partiality.

Even if one will call themselves a Christian, the practice of these fleshly qualities will lead them to destruction ( Galatians 5:19-21 ), though GOD Gives repentance, for our Sanctification, without which no one shall see The LORD, is a process, not an instant transformation.

For one to name one's self as Of CHRIST and they hear The MASTER'S Voice, then they shall recognise this, and being always diligent in their walk to die to sin and live to Righteousness.

In us, is humility borne of Love, or is Love borne of humility? Would it not be that to attempt to answer this question would merely serve as rhetoric in an ever decreasing circle, never coming to a sound conclusion. We humble ourselves under The Mighty Hand Of GOD and HE HIMSELF Will Perfect, Confirm, Strengthen and Establish us, and in this too, that we may pursue Love. No man takes this work to himself; we are GOD'S Workmanship. To HIM Belongs The Glory.

In The Beginning GOD Created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep; and The SPIRIT Of GOD Was Moving over the surface of the waters. Then GOD Said, "Let There Be Light"; and there was light. And GOD Saw that the light was good; and GOD Separated the light from the darkness. And GOD Called the light day, and the darkness HE Called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day. Genesis 1:1-5.

Just as all things are From GOD, And GOD Is Love, and humility Comes From GOD; to us It Is The Fruit Of The SPIRIT ( Galatians 5:22-26 ). Light will follow darkness; Salvation Is From GOD because of sin. Grace To us through faith in The Light Of the world; JESUS CHRIST, Full Of Grace And Truth.

"Come to ME, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I Will Give you Rest. "Take MY Yoke upon you, and learn From ME, for I Am Gentle And Humble In Heart; and you shall Find Rest For your souls. "For MY Yoke Is Easy, And MY Load Is Light." Matthew 11:28-30.

It is only By Grace through faith that any may recognise the weight of the burden they carry. And even, recognise whether they continue to be weary and heavy-laden.

Test yourselves if you are in The faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that JESUS CHRIST Is in you - unless indeed you fail the test? 2 Corinthians 13:5.

For us, if there is deficiency in one, either love or humility, then the other can only be lacking also. And whatever is lacking is incomplete, insufficient. So then, one upholds the other just as one cannot be true without the other. Apart from humilty one cannot know Love, and apart from Love one does not and cannot know humility. This is Truth:

Love Is Patient and humility also is mild and slow to anger.

Love Is Kind and humilty beholds benevolence, a desire of goodwill toward others. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each one of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also In CHRIST JESUS, WHO, although HE Existed In The Form Of GOD, did not regard Equality With GOD A Thing to be grasped, but Emptied HIMSELF, Taking The Form of a bond-servant, being Made in the likeness of men... Philippians 2:3-7.

As is the earthy, so also are those who are earthy; and as Is The Heavenly, so also are those who are Heavenly. And just as we have borne the image of the earthy ( fleshly ), let us also ( now let us ) bear The Image Of The Heavenly. 1 Corinthians 15:48-49.

Love is not jealous and humility in its meekness will zealously seek that of others before itself; Love, Humility; will not covet.

Love does not brag and humility cannot boast in extolling itself excessively; to do so is not humility! To GOD Belongs The Glory. I will extol THEE, my GOD, O KING; and i will bless THY Name Forever and ever. Psalm 145:1. To GOD Belongs The Glory. For With THEE Is The Fountain Of Life; In THY Light we see Light. Psalm 36:9.

Love is not arrogant and humility, being the state of lowliness of mind, will not know to bear itself loftily, to be proud.

Love does not act unbecomingly and humility does not act inappropriately through its deep sense of moral littleness.

Love does not seek its own and humilty in its state of humbleness will not crave or demand for itself above or before that of another, and this is because all is being ultimately for GOD; just as JESUS CHRIST In The Days Of HIS Flesh: Oh, The Depth Of The Riches Both Of The Wisdom And Knowledge Of GOD! How Unsearchable Are HIS Judgements And Unfathomable HIS Ways! For who has known The Mind Of The LORD, or who has become HIS counselor? Or who has first given to HIM that it might be paid back to HIM again? For From HIM And Through HIM And To HIM Are All Things. To HIM The Glory Forever. Amen.

I urge you therefore, Brethren, By The Mercies Of GOD, to present your bodies a living and Holy sacrifice, acceptable to GOD, your Spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be Transformed By The Renewing of your mind ( Titus 3:1-8 ), that you may prove what The Will Of GOD Is, that which is good and acceptable and Perfect. Romans 11:33 - 12:2.

Love is not provoked and humility in its meekness cannot be provoked, it is not so easily exasperated nor irritated.

Love does not take into account a wrong nor does it hold a bad nature as a Christian ought not to bear, and humility will know to see that there is none good but GOD; this is a knowledge of the deep sense of moral littleness not naturally possessed, but Spiritually Acquired; leading to the moral excellence required of one who seeks to gain Entrance Into The Eternal Kingdom Of our LORD And SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST: The faith, By The Righteousness Of our GOD And SAVIOUR, JESUS CHRIST: Grace And Peace Be Multiplied To you In The Knowledge Of GOD And Of JESUS our LORD; Seeing that HIS Divine Power Has Granted To us Everything Pertaining To Life and godliness, Through The True Knowledge Of HIM WHO Called us By HIS Own Glory And Excellence. For By These HE Has Granted To us HIS Precious And Magnificent Promises, in order that By Them you might become Partakers of Divine Nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply Moral Excellence, and in Moral Excellence, Knowledge; and in Knowledge, Self-Control, and in Self-Control, Perseverance, and in Perseverance, godliness; and in godliness, Brotherly Kindness, and in Brotherly Kindness, Love. For if These are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful In The True Knowledge Of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. For he who lacks these is blind, short-sighted having forgotten Purification from his former sins. Therefore, Brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about HIS Calling And Choosing you; for as long as you practice ( do ) These Things, you will never stumble; for in This Way The Entrance Into The Eternal Kingdom Of our LORD And SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST Will Be Abundantly Supplied To you... 2 Peter 1:2-11. This means being Established In Truth; nothing short of it!

Love does not rejoice in unrighteousness and humility too will grieve at iniquity in the knowledge of what the humble heart knows; Humility: The having a humble opinion of one's self. A deep sense of moral littleness. Modesty, lowliness of mind. Meekness.

Love rejoices with The Truth and humility will thrive, rejoice exceedingly with Truth.

As in a mirror face reflects face, so will Love reflect humility and vice versa. Harsh words, revilings, accusations, insults, these things know neither Love nor Humility. And as The Scripture Says; ...Knowledge makes arrogant, but Love edifies. If anyone supposes that he knows anything, he has not yet known as he ought to know; but if anyone loves GOD, he is Known By HIM. 1 Corinthians 8:1b-3. GOD Is Opposed To the proud, but Gives Grace To the humble ( 1 Peter 5:5-11 ), and all are Saved only By Grace through faith.

All Things Of GOD are From GOD, WHO Alone Possesses Immortality; Given By The SPIRIT. Now i say this, Brethren, that flesh and blood cannot Inherit The Kingdom Of GOD; nor does the perishable Inherit The Imperishable. 1 Corinthians 15:50.

As in water face reflects face, So the heart of man reflects man. Proverbs 27:19.

"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see GOD." Matthew 5:8

The heart is Cleansed by faith ( Acts 15:9, Acts 26:18 )

Test yourselves if you are in The faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that JESUS CHRIST Is in you - unless indeed you fail the test? 2 Corinthians 13:5.
