We are excited to feature a brand new unreleased song from singer-songwriter Stephen Bautista. “On My Knees” is a beautiful work about humility, prayer, and trusting God through adversity.
Listen On My Knees
“When I confess that I am unworthy and can do nothing to earn God’s favor, and that it is only by his Grace that I’ve been saved, it always seems to knock me off of my proverbial perch and send me to my knees in true repentance and humility.”
from “The Irony of Christian Humility”

This piece is a response to the following passages:
My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise. (Psalm 51:17)
For this is what the high and exalted One says— he who lives forever, whose name is holy:
“I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit,
to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. (Isaiah 57:15)
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! Read More…(Philippians 2:3-11)
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (Colossians 3:12)
For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. (Matthew 23:12)
