Those of us inspired to Greatness, to follow in the footsteps of our elder brother Jesus Christ, know in our hearts what we must do. Here we must walk a path of humility, and use every waking moment to fine-tune that greatly lacking skill that fails to find its mark on many a well-professed spiritual man or woman of God. Thus did the idea come into being, orchestrated by the great Master of all Plans, to bring into being 'A Course in Humility'. For while we, in our mere mortal state, deceive our self too easily we walk the path of humility, the fruits that we bear of anger and impatience and frustration and the like, reveal that the tree that bears the fruit is not yet one of the perfection of humility, but that of pride.
Only the meek―those who have perfected humility―shall find their way into the kingdom of God. For if the least of those in the kingdom of God is greater than the greatest of those born of women, John the Baptist [Luke 7:28], how can we in our self-glory and enmity toward our fellow brethren ever stand a chance? Until our ascension into the kingdom of God, we all remain locked in a prison, until we have paid back 'every last penny', which is the accumulative debt of our pride. Thus did the idea come into being of a 1-year course for the spiritual man or woman of God to fine-tune and perfect the state of humility. Here it is suggested, for all is by choice, that we read and study the inspired work by Andrew Murray; aptly titled 'Humility'. This greatest of works will lay the foundation, and like a great northern star, will point us toward the direction of our redemption. Then we examine the Word of Jesus Christ and His new revelation in 'Healing dis-ease in the Mind of Christ' by Maitreya Christos. For until now, He has had many things to say, but we have not been able to bear them. Only to those who are favored by God, will the mysteries of God be revealed [Jeremiah 33:3; Daniel 2:28]. It is here we examine the 217 verses―one each day―after reading the text of this book once, twice, or thrice; for each of the verses is a 'component' of humility, that will bring us closer to the kingdom of God. At regular intervals throughout our day, let us examine that verse with utmost humility, and end our reading with the following prayer: “Heavenly Father, please make known to me any lack of humility and remove from my heart all trace of pride.” Only through this true and earnest heart-felt calling will all trace of the spirit of pride be removed from our heart, one day at a time, for ask and ye shall receive, knock and the door will be opened. As we reach the great verse, verse 180, let us examine this verse over 18 days, for it accounts for the 18 Spirits of Christ, and these should be examined independently. Should we find we have greater time on our hands, let us pray and meditate in quiet reflection on the core message of each verse throughout our day, and intermittently repeat the aforementioned prayer. Let us not waste a day in this greatest of callings, for no man or woman on earth has a greater calling. And for those whose minds are not distracted by the things of this world, who can harness their time for this greatest of callings, they are truly blessed indeed. Leighton Crichton Ministries
