How to be Humble like Jesus



On Palm Sunday Jesus rode into town on a donkey, portaying both his kingship, and also his humility. How do we his disciples be humble like Christ, when we are often so proud, and also frequently unaware of it? In this message David Alley uses the Old Testament book of Deuteronomy to give a definition of humility that is more achievable for us, and also something that we see in the life of Christ.

Humility



"True Humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less" - C. S. Lewis Traditionally Humility is viewed in a negative way, often associated with humiliation, or to be put low. Philip Alley puts forward a more positive definition of humility to be embraced. John Dickson says “Humility is the noble choice to forgo your status, deploy your resources or use your influence for the good of others before yourself.” True Humility assumes the dignity or strength of the one possessing the virtue.

Surrender



John Alley begins his message with a brief outline of some of the history of Peace, including a word that was given indicating that we needed to “rope ourselves together for the push to the summit”. From this word, it became apparent that the Lord required the people to join together for prayer every week as a group no less than 60 strong – and this was the beginning of the Watch of the Lord, the Friday night prayer meeting that continues to this day. We reached the summit, says John, in 2002 – but we did not realise it at the time. There were several significant events, all of God, which in hindsight we can recognise as attaining the heights that we sought God for. But we must keep on looking for the fullness of what God has for us. There is another mountain to climb and to be successful we all must empty ourselves before the Lord in full surrender. We are very ordinary people – but God can use ordinary people. We must not give pride any place in our lives but must humble ourselves before the Lord. John brings an exhortation to each one to pray specific prayers from this time forward for the pastors in the city to be brought together in deep unity and also for the raising of the city eldership. John concludes with Psalm 144:12-13 , a passage which describes the outcomes of true unity in the body of Christ.

The Importance of Failure



Nobody likes to fail, but everybody does at some time in their lives. However there is much we can learn from failing, and without failure we may in fact never come into everything Christ plans for us.

In this important message from Philip Alley we learn why failure isn't so bad after all, as long as we don't give up. We also learn about some of the dangers of success.

We need GOD, GOD needs us



Michael Appleton begins today’s message with illustrations from Psalm 127 of the futility of human effort without the hand of God being upon it. Michael goes on to explain that while we need God, God also needs us. God has instructed us to go and make disciples of all nations. God will listen to the humble prayer of one person, says Michael, but there is great power in the combined prayers of many.

Michael then goes on to emphasise that while our Senior Minister John Alley has an apostolic call on his life, so do we have a call to be an apostolic people and to push the victory home through the power of prayer.
