The Credibility of Humility Jan 31, 2021 City of Rebels | Robert Watson Daniel was humble. Contrary to popular belief there are no “jerks for Jesus”. God opposes the proud and gives grace to the humble (1 Peter 5:5), which means humility is the chief virtue of the Christian life. Humility is not weakness or a lack of bravery. It’s quite the opposite. It’s a strength that embraces the sovereignty of God, the reality of who we are and who we aren’t, and submits itself to the care of God with nothing to prove. Humility is a great strength. It releases the favor of God and gives us influence with others.
