Those with humility submit. Their dealings with other people are very restrained. It is interesting that Peter says be clothe with humility, which in Greek literally means put on apron of humility. The Apron is a symbol of service. He is likely thinking back to the last Passover with Jesus, where He took a towel and gird Himself. Then what does he do? He serve. This leads to what humility produces next: humble choosing to serve. They do not fightthey, serve. They do not judgethey serve. The Bible shows quite a number of men who do not look humble on the outside but were in realityin, the eyes of Godhumble!, Moses and David were both warriors and powerful political figures. In what way were they humble? Regardless of what they werejudge, king, prophetthey submit to God. Regardless of what it cost them, they submit to God, and sometimes they had to give orders or do things that we would consider to be quite difficult to do, like going to war or executing transgressors. For a person to be humble in the biblical sense, he must know what is true and right, have good grasp of reality, and submit to it. Ephesians 5: 21 and Philippians 2: 3 both show in broad principle what humility tends to do to person. He is restrain, but at the same time, he is constrain to serve and to submit. Conversely, those who destroy unity are those who exalt themselves against God, men, doctrines, and right traditions.

Verse Thoughts

1 Peter 5: 6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, Humble yourselves-From humility before others, Peter passes to humility before God. Seeing that God bestows blessings upon humble and is dead set against arrogant, humility is an essential virtue! Stress that humility is something that one must voluntarily seek and want. Among other things, this will involve bowing to God's wisdom, accepting the twists and turns of His providence, and entrusting our concerns to him. Under the mighty hand of God-. Points to Note: 1. This Statement should remind us that God is still in control of this world. The same mighty hand that brings children of Israel out of bondage, is still active and working on the side of the Gods people even to this day. 2. Christians never resent experiences of life, and never rebel against them 3. Expression hand of God, would also infer God's protective care, that God is watching out for them, even during times of persecution. God is all-powerful and God never loses control of any situation. That-benefits of humbling ourselves. Unfortunately, many people have convinced themselves that humility is a weak thing. In order to get what they need, they must arrogantly assert themselves. He may exalt you at proper time-Neither specific time nor kind of exaltation are specify, so it is best to understand the statement generally: that in time God deems best, whether in this life or in life to come, He may lift you up from your humble conditions and exalt you in way that seem best to him-perhaps only in terms of increase spiritual blessings and deeper fellowship with Himself, perhaps also in terms of responsibility, reward, or honor which will Be see by others as well. Jesus expressed the same truth. 2. This means that we dont have to worry and fret about whether or not we are getting any credit for a job well done 3. The verse also implies that we need to be patient. Stop worrying about not getting human recognition or glory. 4. Human praise is worth nothing, compared to praise which God will bestow upon us. 5. God will make sure that His people are reward. If one humble ones himself to suffer ignominy, abuse, and persecution in order to keep doing the will of God, then there is assurance that God will lift him on high 6. This truth also enables Christians to stop fretting about situations in which wrong people are praise. Copyright Statement These files are public domain. Text Courtesy of Biblesupport. Com.
