002: Humility – The Prerequisite to Conflict Resolution


We begin today’s episode by continuing the topic of Biblical reconciliation resolving conflict God’s way. One of the prerequisites to conflict resolution is Humility. Humility is one of those things in the Christian life, where if you seek the Lord to develop this in you, it will take you a long way. Why? Because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Walking in humility is how we invite God into the situations of our lives. This discussion will highlight James 4 and will provide additional context to walking in Humility. 

What You'll Discover in this Episode:

  • Grace is God’s work of His power in our lives, for change, growth or service.
  • Humility recognizes: God is in control of the achievements of my life, and they are not primarily dependent upon myself.
  • Humility frees us! It realizes, God is in control of our lives and achievements, so we can rest. 
  • Two great commandments: 1st: Love the Lord with all our heart and the 2nd: Love our neighbor as yourself.
  • A big sign of a person’s level of Humility is their level of contentment.
  • Humility serves others. In Jesus's example in Philippians 2, he came as a servant, and made Himself of no reputation, not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life.
