Welcome to our service today.  It’s great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee. If this is your first time at BBC we especially welcome you.

I’ve been thinking about what are some of the ‘attractive qualities’ that I would want people to see in  me in order to reflect the light of Christ shining out of me. One of the biggies for me is humility – this is something I want to cultivate more and more in myself. We read in the Bible that we are to ‘clothe ourselves with humility’. Jesus was ‘gentle and humble of heart’. We are also instructed to do nothing out of selfish ambition but to always consider others before ourselves. Wow! When I read these I realise I have some work to do!!

Every day we ‘clothe’ ourselves in the physical sense when we get up in the morning. So to ‘clothe’ ourselves in humility means to demonstrate it every day – all day, in every aspect of our life!

Jesus, of course, was a great example of someone who displayed humility. He left everything and became nothing so we might be free from sin and have eternal life. He was our servant King – someone who always put others’ interests before His own and only did the will of the Father, not His own. So I’m challenging myself – how can I put others’ interests before my own in a very real and tangible way? This is not something I expect to conquer overnight – but I reckon it’s worth the journey!

 

With love & blessings, Sandra
