“Following Jesus and Loving People”


I often wonder why so many people don’t surrender to the Lordship of Jesus. I also wonder, “What is it that will keep more people out of heaven more than anything else?” The answer to this can be discovered from the words of Mary, mother of Jesus. Right after she received a Word from God through her relative Elizabeth, Mary exclaimed, “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant…he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble” (Luke 1:46-48, 51-52). Notice here the great gulf between those who are proud and those who are humble. Mary describes herself as a servant who dwells in a humble place. From this heart attitude of humility, the Lord lifted her up. When Jesus came to earth, those who noticed and received their Messiah did so because their hearts were soft and receptive to the promptings of God. Herod, Caiaphas, Pilate and those like them missed out entirely because they were too full of themselves. Their eyes were on themselves and did not notice what was right in front of them! From reading and studying the Bible over 40 years, I repeatedly discover how God loves to share his grace with the humble and withholds his grace from those who think they have it all together. Please remember this one great truth about Christmas: in the end, humility always overcomes the pride of man. Every person walking on this planet has the awesome responsibility to determine the “state” of his heart. Can God say of you, “I am mindful of the humble state of my servant”? The Lord will not forget his devoted followers. He has goodness and mercy in mind for you!
