Humility



I am currently in Kansas City for a meeting today. Yesterday I attended the onething conference put on by the International House of Prayer. There are 20,000 plus youth in attendance here, most on fire for God.

Last night, Loren Cunningham addressed the crowd. He is the founder of Youth With a Mission (YWAM) which is celebrating its 50 year anniversary. They are the largest mission organization in the world. He has been very good friends with people like Bill Bright, Billy Graham and Oral Roberts. He has impacted more people for Christ than most who have ever lived. Yet, he remains incredibly humble. Last night, he sluffed off all his accolades and gave credit to God and others.

That humility is one of the main reasons he is such a great leader.

God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.
James 4:6b

Humility does not mean that Loren was not driven to accomplish something. People tend to confuse humility with lack of ambition. I tend to think of God filling us with His desire to do his calling, whether it is ambition for mission, or selling cars, or building a career, or writing a book. All for his glory.
