“Submission & Humility”

February 19, 2023

1 Peter 5:5-7

5 You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders. And all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE. 

6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, 

7 CASTING ALL YOUR ANXIETY ON HIM, because He cares for you.

“Smooth relations in the church can be preserved if the entire congregation adorns itself with humility. When believers recognize that they are creatures and sinners, they are less apt to be offended by others. Humility is the oil that allows relationships in the church to run smoothly and lovingly.” - Dr. Thomas R. Schreiner
