Season 4

Humility

Humility is a slippery fish – no sooner do you think you’ve got hold of it than it’s escaped from your grasp completely. But it’s still one of the words we associate strongly with Jesus. In Philippians 2 Paul praises Jesus for “making himself nothing” – even though he was God himself. Micah 6:8 famously tells us that God requires us to “act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.” For all that, humility has a bad rap nowadays. Being humble will get you nowhere in today’s world where everyone is clamouring for attention – it just makes you a pushover. Except that Jesus wasn’t even close to being a pushover. So how do we rehabilitate our concept of humility and see it is a place of strength, in God, rather than of weakness? What did it mean for Jesus to know who he was, know what he was called to do, know himself to be deeply loved, and choose to lay aside his power in order to serve others? To be willing to be judged and misunderstood and not need to be vindicated? How do we get to the place where we are willing to do the same? That’s the question at the heart of Season 4.
