Thoughts from the Diary of a Desperate Man by Walter A Henrichsen (“Walt”)
“For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.” Colossians 2:9-10
The dictionary defines humility as the modest opinion or estimate of one’s own importance. You must know your position in Christ to be a humble servant of Christ. Assurance produces security, and security produces humility. Your assurance is the key to spiritual self-esteem.
Insecure people have no capacity to be humble. When you confront a person for his lack of humility, you may be accurate, but that does not mean that he can change even if he wants to. His problem rests in his perception of himself; pride is merely the symptom. Proud people have something to prove. They are not content with who they are and feel the need to assert themselves, to convince people that they are who they want to be.
For this reason, understanding your position in Christ is of the utmost importance. “You are complete in Him.” You can add nothing to who you are by your own effort; you have nothing to prove, either to God, others, or yourself. You are important, not because of your performance, but because the Creator God of the universe declares you to be important. Secure in the fact that you are an “heir of God and fellow heir with Christ,”231 you can live the life of a humble servant of Christ, freely spending yourself in meeting the needs of others.
