When we come to Messiah, we come as sinners, recognizing our great lack and His great provision. We acknowledge that we are bankrupt, i.e. we come with nothing to offer Him but our sin and our need for salvation. We recognize our complete inability to save ourselves. When we accept God’s offer of grace and mercy, we accept it in humble gratitude and commit our lives to serve Him and others. We die to self so that we can live as new creations in Messiah. I explained this in depth last week. He has exchanged our unworthiness for His infinite worth, our sin for His righteousness, and the life we now live, we live by faith in the Son of God who loved us and gave Himself for us. This is true humility.
