Hello Reader, Your Welcome To My Blog =D Here’s A Message About Humility…
“Now when Jesus had crossed over again by boat to the other side, a great multitude gathered to Him; and He was by the sea. And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet and begged Him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.” So Jesus went with him, and a great multitude followed Him and thronged Him.” Mark 5.21-24 NKJV
In the verse, you can see that Jairus a ruler, right? To be a ruler let’s assume he was a very religious person, he had influence, he must have had quite a bit knowledge on the things of God and a respected man in his community. So I’m sure he didn’t lack anything in life. He must have been living a fulfilled life. HOWEVER, with all his influence, status, knowledge etc… what good was it if none of these things could save his daughter’s life?
You know at the time, the majority of the rulers, high priest and people of religious influence didn’t believe in Jesus, but he had to make a vital decision: Sacrifice his pride to have an experience with Jesus or keep his pride and lose his daughter. Think about this: What good is it for you to be set in your ways, your ego, you skills, your achievements, your church, your title, your fame or a position, if you are unhappy inside and in a cycle of losing things close to your heart?
Jairus chose swallow his pride, status and even beliefs. He renounced everything he was and fell at the feet of Jesus. Only a humble person is able to do this; someone who is sincere and understands that this is the only way to have a real encounter with Jesus. The key and amazing thing is among a massive crowd, Jesus attended to his need! Humility has power.
The Lord mocks the mockers but is gracious to the humble. Proverbs 3:34 NLT
God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble. James 4:6 NKJV
Jesus wants to go with you right now, because wherever He goes life follows. The daughter of Jairus was revived. Your relationship, your finances & career, your health, your soul, everything can also be revived right now. Given this, what are you going to do?
I hope now you make the decision right now to put everything else aside and surrender your life at the feet of Jesus. I can assure you that you can be saved today!!!
