Humility

Saw this in a mail subscription, which touch my heart even before. Can we be humble? Approach with everything with humility? To put bluntly, to be spit upon, bullied, abused? For the sake of Christ? Yes. What if you are corporate staff? A business man? Sounds like not all jobs are suitable for a Christian? I don’t know. I can be humble at times, while sometimes, I can be haughty. O, for the sake of Christ, what should I do?

Would we know whether we are really converted? Would we know the test by which we must try ourselves? The surest mark of true conversion is humility. If we have really received the Holy Spirit, we shall show it by a meek and childlike spirit. Like children, we shall think humbly of our own strength and wisdom, and be very dependent on our Father in heaven. Like children, we shall not seek great things in this world; and having food and clothing and a Fathers love, we shall be content. Truly this is a heart-searching test! It exposes the unsoundness of many a so-called conversion.
