Humility - the example of Jesus

In the book of John Chapter 1, John talks about Jesus.
In the beginning was the word, the word was with God and the word was God. All things came into being through him.
And the word became flesh and dwelt among us.

What a glorious event in History! God became a human being. The Almighty God who created the Heavens and the earth
came down to earth from heaven and became a man. He emptied himself, took the position of a slave and identified himself as one with the human race. What an example to follow.

Jesus considered others more important than himself and hence he had no problem in serving anyone. He came to serve and not to be served. Phillipians 2

We as Human beings were infected with Pride way back in the garden of Eden, when Lucifer infected the human race with the spirit of Pride. Sin entered through pride and so Salvation can come only through humility, the opposite of pride.

Christ asks us to follow him, in his humility.

What do we have that we have not received. God created man from the dust of the earth. He created our bodies, He gave us our intelligence, our looks, wealth, health, job, family etc. He deserves the glory for all the good things present in our lives.

May God help us to follow his example of Humility the rest of our lives.
