If the summation of the gospel is to love God with all our hearts and our neighbor as ourselves, then the essence of how we fulfill that commandment is found in clothing ourselves in an attitude of humility. First we walk humbly with God; then we practice humility toward our fellow human beings. Becoming a humble person is God's will for every believer, but it is every individual's choice. If we do not choose to walk humbly but instead choose to exalt ourselves, God will humble us in a way that we would never have chosen. This character quality is so dear to God's heart that it is the key to walking closely with Him and finishing life well.

C Peter Wagner
Dr. C. Peter Wagner is the President of the Global Harvest Ministries and Chancellor of the Wagner Leadership Institute (established in 1998). Prior to this, Wagner and his wife served as missionaries in Bolivia, and from 1971, he was Professor of Church Growth at Fuller Theological Seminary School of World Missions and served on several mission oriented committees and organizations such as Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization and American Society of Missiology.
Wagner has also been associated with several global movements of the Holy Spirit. His outspoken advocacy of praying for the sick, spiritual mapping, identificational repentance, the ministry and role of apostles and prophets in the church today, and demonic deliverance have identified Peter as a pioneer in the arena of spiritual warfare. Perhaps his most significant contribution so far has been his relentless effort to promote strategic and effective prayer.
Wagner has written over 60 books. Those currently in print include: Your Spiritual Gifts Can Help Your Church Grow, Strategies for Church Growth, How to Have a Healing Ministry, Prayer Warrior Series, and Churchquake!
