Description : The Power and Freedom of a Humble Life Pride is often the true reason why we get our feelings hurt, why we feel rejection, why we won’t admit to mistakes, why we want to be seen with certain people, and why we stay angry. Jesus gives us the perfect example of a powerful life lived without conceit, smugness, or arrogance. So why do we not want to admit to our pride? It is because of our pride! In The Power of Humility, R. T. Kendall challenges us to look deeply into our hearts and motives to recognize the pride and self-righteousness there. Using personal stories and enlightening examples from the Bible, he demonstrates how pride interferes with a close relationship with God and reveals how to overcome pride and become more like Jesus.
Description : What is humility, really? Is it possible to live a life of true humility? Is it even something we should seek to attain? Murray dispels common misconceptions about humility and helps unwrap its mystery in a practical and transformative way. He invites us to follow Christ into the deep, hidden fullness and delight of a life lived wholly dependent on God. “Nothing is more natural and beautiful and blessed than to be nothing, that God may be all…it is not sin that humbles most, but grace.”
Description : Humility is the only ladder to the highest honor in God’s kingdom. It is being and doing nothing by ourselves so that God can be all. It is the acknowledgement that every child of God is but a vessel through which the living God can manifest the riches of His wisdom, power and goodness. HUMILITY reveals an entirely new side of this little understood Christian grace. Andrew Murray shows that humble dependence on God is the basis of all genuine blessing. It is the highest virtue of man and the secret to true nobility.
Description : What is Jesus like? What kind of a person is he? Is he emotional or stoic? Is he proud or humble? Is he aloof or friendly? This book attempts to answer these types of questions. After demonstrating that Jesus is the promised Christ and that he is both divine and human, this book examines Jesus' personal characteristics as they are displayed in the four Gospels. The four Gospels are clearly not a typical biography of Jesus. Nonetheless, they do provide an informative account of his life here on earth, from which we can discover what he is like as a person.
Description : This book brings a variety of theological resources to bear on the now widespread effort to put humility in its proper place. In recent years, an assortment of thinkers have offered competing evaluations of humility, so that its moral status is now more contentious than ever. Like all accounts of humility, the one advanced in this study has to do with the proper handling of human limits. What early Christian resources offer, and what discussions of the issue since the eighteenth century have often overlooked, is an account of the ways in which human limits are permeable, superable and open to modification because of the working of divine grace. This notion is especially relevant for a renewed vision of intellectual humility-the primary aim of the project-but the study will also suggest the significance of the argument for ameliorating contemporary concerns about humility's generally adverse effects.
