Shine: A Life of Humility
Humility is a tricky virtue, because just as soon as you think you have mastered it, you've lost it. This summer we have been talking about living the kind of life that influences others, where the light of Christ in us, shines on them. I believe this is the heart of humility, that we turn all the focus and attention away from us and onto God and others. This is really hard to do in our culture, because everything is about "me". I'll never forget the opening line to Rick Warren's best selling book, The Purpose Driven Life, which says, "it's not about you". We've said for years that we have this one and only life and it's not about us, it's about giving our life away. We are to be living sacrifices of servant-hood and this is not just hard to do if your not humble, it's impossible! Christianity is not about jockeying for position in the culture, it's about leveraging your life to transform the culture. What I love about the Gospels is that Jesus doesn't just talk the talk on this issue, he actually demonstrates an example. He doesn't give a 3-point lecture on humility, he shows us how to actually do it. Join us Sunday as we continue to pursue a life that allows us to shine.
