And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
James 4:6 (NLT)
To receive the grace of God in Christ Jesus, we humble ourselves by removing ourselves from the center of our lives and making Jesus the center of our lives. Self-effort always springs out of pride, whereas grace flows out of this act of humility of totally surrendering our lives to the Lord Jesus. Today, let us humbly look unto Jesus, relying upon His goodness and His mercy to transform us from the inside out.
