Gospel Centered Community: Week 6 - A Humble Community

Dec 11, 2018


Welcome to Behind the Veil Christian Ministries, where we strive to build a Gospel Centered Community. In this week's sermon blog, we delve into the concept of a humble community and its significance in our faith and beliefs.

A Humble Community

When you think about a community, what comes to mind? Perhaps a group of individuals coming together, sharing common goals and values. But what about humility? Humility plays a crucial role in fostering a strong and thriving community.

The Significance of Humility

In our Gospel Centered Community series, we recognize that humility is not a sign of weakness, but rather a characteristic of a strong and mature faith. Humility allows us to place the needs of others above our own, fostering an environment of compassion and understanding.

Humility and Relationships

Within our community, relationships are at the core of our faith and beliefs. Humility strengthens these relationships, as it allows us to approach others with empathy and grace. It helps us to listen and understand, fostering a sense of unity and harmony.

The Power of Servant Leadership

Leadership within our community is not about exerting control or seeking personal gain. It is about servant leadership, modeled after Jesus Christ Himself. By embracing humility in leadership, we set an example for others to follow and inspire a culture of humility within the community.

Building a Humble Community

Now that we understand the significance of humility in our community, how can we actively foster a humble environment?

Practicing Active Listening

One of the essential aspects of humility is listening. By actively listening to others, we demonstrate respect and validation for their experiences and ideas. It allows us to learn from one another and grow together.

Eradicating Judgment

Judgment and criticism can hinder the growth of a humble community. Instead of focusing on the flaws of others, we strive to see the inherent goodness in each person, understanding that we all have our weaknesses and strengths. By embracing a non-judgmental approach, we create a safe space for vulnerability and personal growth.

Fostering Unity and Collaboration

Humility encourages unity and collaboration within our community. By recognizing that no one person has all the answers, we open ourselves up to seeking input from others. We value diversity of thought and strive to find common ground, working towards shared goals and enriching the collective wisdom of our community.

Embracing Gratitude

A humble community is rooted in gratitude. We acknowledge and appreciate the contributions of each individual, expressing our gratitude for their presence and involvement. Gratitude fosters a sense of connection and encourages a spirit of generosity and giving.


As we conclude our exploration of a humble community, we invite you to reflect on the role humility plays in your own life. At Behind the Veil Christian Ministries, we believe that by embracing humility, we can build a Gospel Centered Community that stands as a beacon of love, compassion, and unity in our world. Join us as we continue to cultivate a humble community and make a positive impact on those around us.
