His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1:3-8 ESV)
Narcissism and vanity characterize the spirit of our age—particularly when it comes to social media, where we’re tempted to promote ourselves, make ourselves look good and present a certain image of ourselves to the world. But when faced with the glory of God, Scripture calls upon us to exhibit a different attitude: humility.
What is does it mean to be truly humble? What does it mean to humble oneself before the Lord? If we are serious about giving all the glory to God, what should this look like in the Christian life? In this public academic lecture, Professor David VanDrunen will take a closer look at the much-neglected virtue of humility, drawing on recent research on his forthcoming book on moral theology.
