  5. 5. An Experiential Exegesis of the Dependability of Humility<br />1. It is not being bashful, shy, timid or weak<br />2. It is not always putting yourself down<br />3. It takes an enormous amount of courage, self-confidence, personal security and self-esteem<br />
  6. 6. Definition<br />Insecurity always produces arrogance.<br />
  7. 7. Definition<br />For the believer, humility is a matter of confident Christlikeness, because humility is an expression of love.<br /><ul><li>Matt. 5:3-5 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.</li></li></ul><li>Definition<br />For the believer, humility is a matter of confident Christlikeness, because humility is an expression of love.<br />Isa. 66:2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.<br />
  8. 8. PointOne<br />Humility is not rooted in our feelings, but rooted in our actions, because like love, humility is a choice.<br />James 4:6-7 But [God] giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.<br />
  9. 9. PointTwo<br />Humility is not thinking less of you, but thinking so much more of Christ that you can act in the best interest of others instead of yourself. <br />
  10. 10. PointThree<br />Humility is self-forgetfulness, and that is a choice.<br />1 John 3:18-19 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.<br />
  11. 11. 2011Goal<br />Our goal in 2011 is to concentrate on the new nature long enough until it becomes second nature.<br />

Matthew 26:39-42<br />And [Jesus] went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.<br />
