Graphic Humility

Below is my visual take on Jonathan Edward’s sermon from verses 1-10 of 1 Corinthians 13, A Christian Spirit is a Humble Spirit, previously entitled, The Spirit of Charity, An Humble Spirit. The sermon is one in a series entitled, Charity and Its Fruits.
A Graphic of the definition and characteristics of Humility

There is much more depth to the sermon that I have depicted. For example, Edwards explains the difference between Christ’s humility and ours, how love of God implies humility, and how the gospel draws forth acts of humble love. If you want your mind to be challenged, your heart to be affected, and have a little time, the 17th-century edition of the series that contains this sermon, edited by Edward’s great-great-grandson, Tryon Edwards, is available free online at Internet Archive in several formats. You can also purchase Kyle Strobel’s excellent edition published by Crossway in 2012.

  1. I love your visual take on Edward’s sermon. It really helps to see what he is saying visually and it looks neat. You have me wanting to read the sermon and I think your breakdown will help me. It took me months to read through and understand his sermon, “A Divine and Supernatural Light,” and I was not disappointed. I learned so much from it. Thank you!

  2. Thanks so much for your comment. It is really impossible for a simple graphic to do Edward’s deep and complex thoughts justice. You have me wanting to read “A Divine and Supernatural Light.”
