Loved this quote, "When we enter God’s presence on our knees, he lifts us up to stand before him on our feet." Entering into a relationship through the door of humiliation is difficult for most. Yet when I consider who I am in light of who Jesus is, well it really should not be that hard.
I very much agree with Dr. Denison that this attitude does not come to us naturally. It is something I have to work at often. But keeping a good look at who I am verses who Jesus keeps me grounded.
I also think about the humblest servants I have been around over the years in church. They dropped their pride off at the door serving unconditionally and with love. These humble servants have been some of my best friends in church and to this day have left the longest lasting impressions on me.
Even as a leader I need to approach my task with a humble spirit.
