In Luke 14, we are taught, a person who humbles themselves will be exalted but one who exalts themselves will be humbled. We have no righteousness apart from Jesus Christ. Therefore, we should remain humble. Being humble as a Christian is recognizing there is nothing special about us apart from Christ. God did not provide salvation to any Christian because they did good works. Salvation comes through the atoning work of Jesus Christ. We are to be humble because we understand that apart from a Jesus Christ we have nothing. We owe everything to Jesus Christ!
