Christ’s Example of Humility

Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage

Today’s Devotional

Philippians 2:6 reveals the humility of Jesus Christ, who, even though He is God, chose not to exploit His divine status for His own benefit. Instead, He willingly emptied Himself, taking on the form of a servant and becoming human. Jesus’ humility and willingness to sacrifice for our sake serve as an inspiring example of the attitude we should adopt as His followers.

In a world where power, wealth, and status are often sought and flaunted, Jesus’ example of humility stands in stark contrast. His life teaches us that true greatness comes not from elevating ourselves, but from putting the needs of others before our own and serving them selflessly. By embracing Jesus’ example of humility, we can grow in our faith, deepen our relationships with others, and experience the true joy that comes from living a Christ-centered life.

Time to reflect

In order to follow Christ’s example of humility, we should:

  • Recognize our dependence on God and acknowledge His sovereignty in our lives.
  • Cultivate an attitude of gratitude for the blessings and opportunities we have been given.
  • Put the needs of others before our own, seeking ways to serve and support those around us.
  • Resist the temptation to seek recognition or praise for our good deeds, instead, giving glory to God.
  • Pray for a humble heart and ask God to help us follow Jesus’ example of selflessness and sacrifice.

Prayer Of The Day
