Considering ourselves in humility !!!



Considering ourselves in humility



The right position of a Christian is to walk with lowly humility before God, and with meekness towards his fellow Christians. 


The lowest room becomes us most, and the lowest seat in that room. Look at Paul, who knew far more of Christ than we do, and who served him far better.

 It is edifying to notice his expressions. 
He is an apostle, and he will by no means allow any one to question his calling, for he has received it of the Lord; but what does he say? “Not meet to be called an apostle.” 
What can be lowlier than this? But we shall see him descending far below it. 

He takes his place among the ordinary saints, and he will not give up his claim to be numbered with them, for he has made his calling and election sure; but where does he sit among the people of God? He styles himself “less than the least of all saints.” 

There is no small a descent from “not meet to be called an apostle” to “less than the least of all saints;” but he went lower yet, for at another time he confessed himself to be still a sinner, and coming into the assembly of sinners where does he take his position? He writes himself down as “the chief of sinners.” 

This is submission to God, the true surrender of every proud pretension or conceited claim.
 If, my brethren, the Lord has called us to be ministers, let us ever feel that we are not worthy of so great a grace: since he has made us saints, let us confess that the very least of our brethren is more esteemed by us than we dare to esteem ourselves, and since we know that we are sinners let us look at our sins under that aspect which most reveals their heinousness, for in some respects and under certain lights there are evils in our character which make us guiltier than the rest of our fellow sinners. 

The stool of repentance and the foot of the cross are the favourite positions of instructed Christians.


 From a sermon by Charles Haddon Spurgeon entitled "Unconditional Surrender," delivered January 30, 1876.
