Humility - the place of entire dependence upon God

Listen to the words our Lord speaks of His relationship to the Father and see how consistently He uses the words not and nothing of himself...

"The Son can do nothing by himself" (John 15:19).

"I do not accept the praise from men" (John 5:41).

"My teaching is not my own" (John 7:16).

...Of His own power, His own will, His own glory, His whole mission with its works and teaching--of all this, He said, I am nothing. I have given myself to the Father to work; He is all
