God has always told His people to be humble. It has always been necessary that God’s people be humble otherwise, He would not listen to heir cries (1 Chronicles 7:14; 34:27). But when Christ came o the earth, what did He find? He found people boasting and bragging that they were God’s elect. We must be careful not to do that. Rather, we should follow that perfect example that was given to us, which is Christ.
What was the mindset of Christ? It was that of a servant… “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in he likeness of men. And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled himself; and became obedient unto death, even the death of a cross: (Philippians 2:5-8). Christ was he perfect example of humility.
Humility is a rarity. But, of all the people in the world, we — Christians — should be the most humble. That means that we have to serve others. The great example of service is Christ. Remember when Christ washed the feet of the disciples? Now this was the Great King. How often do we hear of kings, presidents, or world leaders humbly serving their people? The same great humility and servant-hood that was shown by Christ should be abundant in our lives as well.
