Humility of Gratitude –
We cannot barter, steal, manipulate, con, finagle, trade, or even win God’s Gift of Salvation. We can only accept with humble gratitude.
It takes humility, even brokenness (which is the opposite of entitlement), to receive this Priceless Jewel that Jesus Christ holds out to us.
The reason humility comes upon the receiving of this Life-Giving Offering is because of the great anguish it cost The Holy One Who made this Gift possible. It cost Him, everything, in heart, soul, spirit, mind, and body.
It cost Him his very self.
He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. (Psalm 25:9)
