The Humbleness of Christ Part 1 and Part 2

The Humbleness of Christ Objective: In this lesson about the humility of Jesus Christ we would like to tackle these 3 main questions; What is Humility according to the bible? How does humility relate to Christ? As believers, how does humility apply in our lives? Part 1: The humility presented by Jesus’ life Chapter objective: To understand the importance of humility as a measurement of greatness in God’s Kingdom. To relate Christ as God’s promised King of the world by the nature of his humility. Who is greatest in the Kingdom of God? A question by the disciple - Matt 18 vs. 1-4 The 2 sons of Zebedee story - Matt 20 vs. 20-28 Genesis 49 vs. 9-12 _What was Israel promised? Judah’s blessing. Revelations 12 vs. 1-2, 5, 10-11 Here’s revelation for you - The fruit grapes according to the bible stands for royalty and is in fact humility. Jesus Christ’s life and acts (washing of feet, last supper, prayer in the garden of Gethsemane, His death) - these acts show how humility is not something you physically enjoy doing, it’s hard, painful, uncomfortable, humiliating, but worth it for someone you love. A mind opener of some kings who once existed in the past, but failed humility and their fate. They give us an insight of knowing that if the earth belongs to God; His Will shall always be achieved about the royalty in heaven. So what: The moment you believe in Jesus, you have decided to live His life. You become an ambassador of Christ to all who see you and hear of you; that means you are a King, who should show it by the humility of Jesus in you upon your life. Summary: The Kingdom of God presents a real King being defined as someone who is Humble before God and the people He serves. This was proven by the way Jesus was when He came on earth as a man; He served others, helped, loved, and ultimately gave up His life for all who believe. Humility is the essence/principle of Royalty.   Part 2: Humility; the Fruit of the Spirit Chapter objective: To engage our lives in Christ in terms of being humble to God and others. To aim to produce fruit. Recall: We achieved that Jesus Christ is the one true King of the world by means of His Humility in God and towards the world. The bible mentions humility as a fruit of the grapevine. Galatians 5 vs. 22-23. We were brought on this earth to produce fruit!! Gen 1 vs. 28 The whole biblical messages and events all share that concept. However, we should know that there is only one way to produce fruit and that is through the (Jesus concept) Spirit and the Word of God. Jesus The Real Vine John 15 vs. 1-17 “I am the real vine, and my Father is the gardener. He breaks off every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and he prunes every branch that does bear fruit, so that it will be clean and bear more fruit. You have been made clean already by the teaching I have given you. Remain united to me, and I will remain united to you. A branch cannot bear fruit by itself; it can do so only if it remains in the vine. In the same way you cannot bear fruit unless you remain in me. “I am the vine, and you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will bear much fruit; for you can do nothing without me. Those who do not remain in me are thrown out like a branch and dry up; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, where they are burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, then you will ask for anything you wish, and you shall have My Father's glory is shown by your bearing much fruit; and in this way you become my disciples. I love you just as the Father loves me; remain in my love. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love. “I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My commandment is this: love one another, just as I love you. The greatest love you can have for your friends is to give your life for them. And you are my friends if you do what I command I do not call you servants any longer, because servants do not know what their master is doing. Instead, I call you friends, because I have told you everything I heard from my Father. You did not choose me; I chose you and appointed you to go and bear much fruit, the kind of fruit that endures. And so the Father will give you whatever you ask of him in my name. This, then, is what I command you: love one another. Summary: Jesus is the only means of achieving humility in our lives by always staying connected with Him; through abiding by the Holy Spirit and the Word He speaks in our lives as Individuals. Let this connection be mutual so that you can continue to produce the fruits of the Spirit until His coming. We are welcomed into the Kingdom of heaven when we live a life of humility towards God and the people around us (Matt 18 vs. 3-4).
