It is grace from God to be humbled. Not what you’d expect huh? Most people don’t want to be humbled because it is synonymous with being “shamed” in our culture, and perhaps that is true. But when God does it, it is always a good thing, and never a bad thing. The quote below clearly shows this, that at the root of our gospel is power to humble the most proud man, bringing him to the cross with nothing and as nothing.
Michael Horton once said,
It is a blow to our spiritual ego to be told that everything has already been done. Yet that is the glory of the gospel.
