Graced-up people should be humble people

Jared Wilson reports on an incident involving 'Mr Your Best Life Now', Joel Osteen and his wife on plane... illustrating that 'the prosperity gospel' seems to produce an assumption of entitlement that can only really be called arrogance. The gospel should produce the opposite - deep humility, service and thankfulness. Woe betide us if it doesn't. Christian life should adorn the gospel, making grace strangely attractive - not because it makes us uppity but because it makes us like Jesus, servant-hearted and self-sacrificing. The same Jesus who on the subject of people who think they deserve greatness put it plainly:
"You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all.For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." (Mark 10v42-45, ESV)
And that looks more like a very different kind of best life: Humility: True Greatness - CJ Mahaney
