Life Together: A Humble Community

Dear Redemption City Family,

Famous British author G.K. Chesterton was once asked what was wrong with the world. He famously responded, 

“Dear Sirs, 

I am.

Sincerely, 
G.K. Chesterton"
 

Another mark of a Jesus-centered community is humility. If we’re honest with ourselves, humility isn’t something that comes easy to us. How do we grow in humility and weaken pride in our lives?  

To grow in humility, we need to identify the ways pride manifests itself. We cannot make ourselves humble; rather, we must turn to Jesus, the perfect example of humility. By the power of the Spirit, we follow Him and personally experience his grace to us. We put pride to death by getting our eyes off ourselves and looking at Christ. As we do this, we will be transformed into a community that seeks to not just serve ourselves but instead those inside and outside of our community.

Tomorrow we will learn about biblical humility and ask God to shape us into a more humble community that is eager to serve Him. I hope you’ll join us. Bring a friend!

Christ is All, 
Pastor Juan
