1 Peter 5:5
...Ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility, for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
Our scripture text makes several profound statements concerning Christians the world over, and they are:
a. Younger believers are to be submissive to older Christians and person in general out of respect for our elders. The older Christian is believed to be more mature in his or her walk with Christ. Older persons are living history that they have gained on life's journey. Older persons have godly wisdom and knowledge that is beneficial to the youth and youth would be wise to seek this knowledge.
b. All believers are encouraged to honor one another with respect, love and compassion. Because all believers are clothed with God's humility, His garment of salvation, which is the righteousness of His Son Jesus Christ.
c. Wearing the garment of humility, believers know who we are and to whom we belong with the right view of each. In God's eye there is no respect of person as He loves us all.
d. God give more grace to the humble person as the humble person emulates Jesus Christ who humbled Himself to leave His home in heaven to become man to become the perfect human sacrifice.
Humility is one of the believer's garments of righteousness as we live and walk in the Spirit of Christ. Be humble.
