Is humility a Christlike attribute that should be pursued? And even if it should be, can genuine humility actually be attained? Often so practical in application that it is overlooked, the answer is found by studying the life and words of Christ (whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your slave). This little book is a loud call to all committed Christians to prove that meekness and lowliness of heart is the evidence by which those who follow the meek and lowly Lamb of God are to be known. Never mind that your initial efforts will be misunderstood, taken advantage of, or even resisted. Instead, learn from the One who came not to be ministered unto, but to serve. For a Christian to be alive, for the life of Christ to reign in and through us, we must be empty of ourselves, exchanging our life for His life, our pride for true, Christlike humility.

All throughout the Bible are recorded stories of God's goodness, grace, mercy, favor, and unconditional love which resulted in abundant blessings. Despite these abundant blessings, many of God's people walked in disobedience, idolatry, pride, rebellion, unbelief, unforgiveness, and unrepentance which resulted in divine discipline from the LORD. This book will admonish us to learn from the examples of those that came before us. It will also encourage us to be hearers and doers of the Word, and to follow the example of Jesus Christ, who is the greatest example of doing the will of our Heavenly Father. "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope." (Rom 15:4) "Now all these things happened unto them as examples, and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come." (1 Cor 10: 11) "For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them, but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it." (Heb 4: 2)

The two beloved works in this volume reflect Murray{u2019}s longing for a deeper life in Christ and his prayer that others would long for and experience that life as well.

What is humility, really? Is it possible to live a life of true humility? Is it even something we should seek to attain? Murray dispels common misconceptions about humility and helps unwrap its mystery in a practical and transformative way. He invites us to follow Christ into the deep, hidden fullness and delight of a life lived wholly dependent on God. “Nothing is more natural and beautiful and blessed than to be nothing, that God may be all…it is not sin that humbles most, but grace.”

Be Transformed by Christ’s Example “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” —1 Peter 5:5 A battle rages within every one of us every day. It’s the clash between our sense of stubborn self-sufficiency and God’s call to recognize that we’re really nothing without Him. It’s pride versus humility. And it’s a fight we can’t win without looking repeatedly to Christ and the cross. C. J. Mahaney raises a battle cry to daily, diligently, and deliberately weaken our greatest enemy (pride) and cultivate our greatest friend (humility). His thorough examination clarifies misconceptions, revealing the truth about why God detests pride and turns His active attention to the humble. Because pride is never passive, defeating it demands an intentional attack. The blessing that follows is God’s abundant favor. “This is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit.” —Isaiah 66:2, ESV God clearly states that He is drawn to the humble. He’s also clear that He opposes the proud. These two, humility and pride, cannot coexist. Where one is fostered, the other is defeated. Which will you pursue? C. J. Mahaney paints a striking picture of the daily battle quietly raging within every Christian and asks whether you will passively accommodate the enemy of your soul, pride, or actively cultivate your best friend, humility. When you acknowledge the deception of pride and intentionally humble yourself, you become free to savor abundant mercies and unlikely graces. You will find a new life is yours—a life God richly favors. A God-glorifying life you don’t want to miss. “C. J. Mahaney is not humble. At least, that’s what he’ll tell you. And that’s one reason he’s so well qualified to write this book.” -Mark E. Dever, Senior pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Author, Nine Marks of a Healthy Church “A much-needed wake-up call on this important subject. I highly recommend this book.” -Jerry Bridges, Author of The Pursuit of Holiness “This is the right book from the right man at the right time.” -R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Story Behind the Book “Given pride’s pervasive presence in my life, I come to this book in holy fear, yet inspired by God’s promises to be humble and sobered by his warnings to the proud (Isaiah 66:2b, 1 Peter 5:5b). Scripture reveals to us that, while pride was the first and most serious sin, God is decisively drawn to humility and is specifically supportive of the humble. Only Christ has fully obeyed Isaiah 66:2b (“This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word”), yet He did so as our representative! How marvelous that in our daily battle against pride we can rely on God’s grace, through the gospel, and thus bring honor and glory to God.” —C. J. Mahaney From the Hardcover edition.

Do you know the reason for your unhappiness? When attitudes toward others are based on past wounds and deception, the result cannot be good fruit. People in a state of distortion do not make wise decisions. Pride and a spirit of selfishness can have enormous consequences, actually resulting in physical illness and depression. Joy in your heart, a smile on your lips, and an attitude of forgiveness toward yourself and your offenders are vital elements in healing. The ideas of retaliation and revenge come from the Evil One who takes pleasure in destroying relationships. If Satan succeeds in stealing your joy and your peace, you may be on the road to a complete meltdown. We must resist the devil. He is the source of disorder and confusion. Condemnation is never the answer. Forgiveness is an indispensable ingredient for spiritual and emotional deliverance and is a spiritual act we can only manage by faith. Respect, care, and empathy offer hope of permanent healing.
