Humility – James 4:10

“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.”

Humility should be one of the primary marks of an authentic Christian, and it is repeated throughout both the Old and the New Testaments. The Psalmist says, “One who has a haughty look and a proud heart, him I will not endure” (Ps. 101:5), while James reminds us that, “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (4:6). I think John the Baptist put it most succinctly when he said, “He must increase, but I must decrease” (Jn. 3:30).

Is heaven for real? Let’s talk about it.

Two major Christian motion pictures movies are out and they’re doing big numbers in the box office. They both, interestingly enough, are both statements of fact! Heaven is for real and God is Not Dead.

The first movie, the heaven movie, is creating quite a stir and I am right in the middle of it, saying “this is the best Christian Movie ever”, others are condemning it saying, “this is terrible theology, it’s some afterlife experience you can’t verify it scripturally”. One thing we can all agree on is the final line from the movie, from the pastor played by Greg Kinnear who said, “Do we believe heaven is for real? Then it will change how we live” That is a true statement. Because, God’s NOT DEAD, he’s Alive! And Heaven IS for Real!
