JESUS: OUR SPIRITUAL MODEL

Hi guys! today we have Bro Yit Ti to lead the discussion. This is our last lesson on Discipleship II. Next year we start Discipleship III.

Bro Yit Ti emphasized that we need to grow in Christlikeness - this is Christian maturity.

One thing that strikes me is that he said we can only be obedient and submit to authority if we learn to be humble. And a humble person leads an active prayer life. For the more he prays, the more he is dependent on God and not on himself. An arrogant person does not know how to submit to authority and does not know how to be obedient. How true!

Very interesting in the home cell on Friday, we watched Reinhard Bonkke's Full Flame series. Reinhard also talked about the importance of humility. When we want to share the gospel, we need to have an attitude of humility. People may never open the Bible but Christians are an open book to them.

Our Lord Jesus is an excellent model of true humility. "Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death - even death on a cross." Philippians 2: 6-8

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2: 9-11

God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Remember pride goes before a fall. Always keep our hearts tender before the Lord. Be careful that pride does not rear its ugly head.
