Extreme Humility

Description

Jesus modeled to us in a very extreme way that while pride gets in the way of relationships, humility opens doors, opens hearts, and changes conditions of people high and low, big and small.

Philippians 2:5-11 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! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Think about this, Jesus, who was God, didn’t consider equality with God something to be held on to. How can this possibly be? How incredibly humble would you have to be to be the best, the very best of everything ever, and yet not hold on to it, not shout it out to everyone who can hear, not put it on your personalized license plate?

Jesus modeled to us in a very extreme way that while pride gets in the way of relationships, especially a relationship with God, humility opens doors, opens hearts, and changes conditions of people high and low, big and small.
