The Greatest Act of Humility

By   •   March 27   •   Topics:


In almost every instance in the Bible, as well as in life, pride is associated with failure, not success. We hear a great deal about the inferiority complex, but the superiority complex of pride is seldom spoken of. It was pride that caused the fall of Lucifer, and he became Satan, the devil. It was pride that led King Saul down to a shameful and untimely death. It was pride that caused Peter to deny his Lord.

The greatest act of humility in the history of the universe was when Jesus Christ stooped to die on the cross of Calvary. And before any man can get to heaven, he must kneel at the foot of the cross and acknowledge that he is a sinner, that he has broken the Ten Commandments of God, and that he needs the grace of God in Christ. No man can come proudly to the Savior.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, You suffered such humiliation and pain for me on the cross. I ask You, humbly, to forgive my pride and errant ways that nailed You there.

    I got saved listening to a Billy Graham Crusade in 1975. What a blessing! I share that with others. Billy Graham is America’s pastor and we are proud of him and what he preaches. Franklin Graham is an extension of that as are members of his family. Thank God for them all.

    Dr Graham has been such an inspiration in my life. I have had the opportunity to attend several of his crusades and he is truly a man of God! Live long Billy and may God bless you!
