One of the things people who have found themselves in the corridor of authority enjoy doing is pride; there is no sense of humility in them at all. To get one who is humble means that he or she is a rare breed. For those who have visited places where top clergymen are, you will be shocked to find out that their aides’ lifestyle is nothing close to Godliness. They become so proud and see themselves as infallible.
Destruction awaits the proud and arrogant, this is one great lesson I learnt from my mentors in the media industry and of course, the Celestial church environment. Humility can be discerned from your relationship with your superiors and subordinates.
Coming to our Church, Celestial Church of Christ which used to be known as gathering where a low ranked person would be in total submission to a man who was superior, the reverse is the case today, no one cares about any seniority, even the elders themselves have failed to respect the laws and instructions of God so the church is what it is today because of Pride.
When you have found yourself in a position you never expected to be suddenly, be careful with your manners because the former Deputy Governor of a state in Nigeria once rose to become number one citizen of the country, those who saw him as a ‘mere boy’ then all licked his booth for favour. Pride usually goes before a fall. Pride is excessive self-esteem. It brings about the misconception that one is better than others… With humility, you can conquer the world.
Jesus Christ humbled Himself to die a shameful death (Philippians 2:8). He made himself of no reputation. He took the posture of a servant through the spirit of humility. It is against this backdrop that God decided to exalt Him highly and gave Him a Name that is above every other name.
Humble yourself man! You are nothing before men and even God! A word, they say, is enough for the wise.
