Psalm 149:1-9

Humility is not a fruit of the Spirit, but it is most definitely part of the character of each Christian. In Psalm 149 we are told “For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory” (v. 4). We are commanded in 1 Peter 5:6 to “Humble yourselves under the mighty hand.” James 4:10 says “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.”

Humility is a form of “lowering” oneself, which is why it is not a fruit.

I think of the great pastors, professors, and leaders I have had the privilege of learning under. The greatest and most accomplished were also the first to clear tables, sweep the floor, or without fanfare or prompting fill any need made aware. Just as Jesus performed the duties of a servant when he washed the disciples feet, the greatest leaders are those willing to get their hands dirty.

As we humble ourselves we become a delight to God and He then will bring us victory, exaltation, and forgiveness of our sin.
