If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit;
apart from me, you can do nothing.
If anyone does not remain in me,
he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers;
such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.
If you remain in me and my words remain in you,
ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.
This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit,
showing yourselves to be my disciples.
From The Relationship Priciples of Jesus by Tom Holladay, pg. 292:
Humility is not thinking less of myself;
it is thinking more of others.
Humility is not putting myself down;
it is lifting God up.
Humility is not denying my strengths;
it is being openly honest about my weaknesses.
Humility is seeing that without Christ I can do nothing,
but in Christ I can do all things.
