ALL THE WAY UP

James 4:10

I. Less About Me
“Humble yourselves”
“Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God.” All we do, we do for Christ. We are better when we practice humility. We gain respect. We gain a reputation. We gain righteousness.

II. Look Appreciative to the Master
“in the sight of the Lord,”
Since we walk by faith and not by sight, we still must realize the Lord is watching over us. Bible says in everything, give thanks. He gave us life and life more abundantly so our acts, attitudes, and associations should be in the spirit of gratitude. The Earth is the Lord’s, and we are to be grateful to be in it.

III. Limited Achievement when done Manually
“and He will lift”
When done by ourselves, we are definitely limited. With God, we are incredibly limitless. We can never achieve the same level of greatness or success as we can with God on our side. If God is for us, who in the world can be against us?

IV. Life’s Advancement is Maximized
“you up.”
He lifts up the humble. No good thing will He withhold from them who walk uprightly. With God, He will bless you beyond the maximum capacity. You will ascend above anything you can ask or think because of the power that works in you.
