The Humble Exalted

For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. (Luke 14:11)

How many times do we see one attempting to exalt themselves?  So often, we find that Christians will seek to exalt ourselves.  Jesus is telling us that if we are doing things to lift up ourselves, we shall be humbled.  We shall be abased.  If I can make it plain by saying it like this, if you put yourself up, you shall be brought down low.  Whatever platform you are building to stand upon, it shall fall from under you.  The way up is down.  When you humble yourself, God will build your platform.  God will lift you up.  God will exalt you.  We should not seek to lift ourselves but rather we should seek to lift up Christ.  That is what will draw men to Jesus.  However, if we are humble, God will lift us up.  If we are not prideful and seeking our own, God will bring us to a place of honor and a place of exaltation.  Don’t waste time lifting yourself.  It will only lead to you being ashamed and embarrassed.  Lift up Christ.  Humble yourself.  And you will be exalted.
