"Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time." - 1 Peter 5:6 Notice how Christians become more and more proud. We better turn back to God and realize He deserves all the credit. He will humble us if we don’t. The Bible teaches both divine sovereignty and human responsibility, and when we accept both, we find no contradiction or conflict. No person is freer than the believer who surrenders to the sovereign will of God.
