The Humility Of CHRIST

Updated on September 10, 2008

The Humility of Christ

"Though he was God ,he did not demand and cling to his rights as God. He made himself nothing, he took the humble position of slave and appeared in human form. And in human form he obediently humbled himself even further by dying a criminal's death on a cross. "

Php 2: 6-8

Jesus Christ is the most humble person who walked the earth. He stripped himself off of all his glory, honor, and grandeur. Christ, the Lord of the Universe chose to become a man, not just a mere man, but a lowly servant .When he became a man he did not choose to dwell in the palace, to live among the noble instead he just chose a lowly community to live in . A community of not good reputation as someone said ‘could anybody good come out from Nazareth'. He just choose poor parents, a poor couple from Bethlehem who could only afford a dove as a sacrificial offering.

Jesus of Nazareth had never sought a wordly position in his entire earthly life of 33 years. In fact he did not choose to have a prestigious career for himself, he chose only to be a humble carpenter, though he could have chosen to be a mighty king. Even though he gained a substantial influence among the people, even though he had risen to a popular status, he never coveted any position in the government. His focus is the fulfillment of the will of the Father in his life. What a great contrast to us men.

From birth, we have been seeking for the best things for us. The best home and the best community, we all wanted to live in Ayala Alabang, Corinthian Gardens, Forbes Park and if we have the control to choose our family line, we could have chosen to be in the clan of the Ayalas, Lopezes, Couangcos, Onnasis, Fords. The best education, all of us always wanted to be graduates of Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Cambridge. We always desire to have the best and most prestigious careers, we always wanted to be employed in the top 100 corporations of the country to be among its top executives. We desire the best espouse, we always wanted to marry the smartest and the most good-looking and most gorgeous guys/girls.

We truly desire the best things for ourselves, to think that we men are just merely clay from the beginning of creation breathed only by the loving Father to see the beauty of life. How much we desire to be clothed with pride and glory. Truly man is proud by nature. The life of Christ is a perfect example of humility which should be a great lesson for all of us men.
