The Humility Of Jesus

by | Apr 10, 2024

The humility of Jesus is nothing of this world. Jesus is the Most High but he was willing to go so low to save us. May you see Jesus rightly and the beauty of his humility.

Who is Jesus? He is love in action. Though Jesus was God, He chose to make Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross (Philippians‬ ‭2‬:‭7‬-‭8‬).

Jesus willingly allowed Himself to be oppressed and afflicted until the point of death on the cross because He knew He had to die for us for us to be saved. Jesus was not weak — He was God, yet He humbly gave up His life for us because He loves us. 

Isaiah 53:7 says, “He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.”

There is only one God who died for our sins and proved His love for us and that is Jesus.

Before Jesus died on the cross, He washed His disciples’ feet. The washing of feet was the role of servants. Jesus humbled Himself and took on the role of a servant by washing His disciples’ feet to also foreshadow Himself humbly giving up His life to die for us so that we can be cleansed of our sins by the shedding of His perfect blood.

Mark 10:45 says, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

When you doubt that God loves you, remember the humility of Jesus. Though Jesus was God, He willingly came to earth and put on flesh to die for us because He loves us. 

Jesus knew that the only way we could be saved from our sins was if He washed us. This is why Jesus says in John 13:8, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.”

There is no one more humble than Jesus because there is no one greater than Him. Though Jesus was great, He willingly took the lowest place on our behalf to save us. What great love Jesus has for us. When you feel unloved, remember the depths of suffering Jesus chose to go through for you. He allowed His whole body to be beaten and flogged for your healing.

Isaiah 52:14 says, “His appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and his form marred beyond human likeness.” 

Jesus humbly gave up His body to be beaten to the point that He wasn’t recognized as a human being. He finished the work of our Salvation by dying on the cross and rising from the grave on the 3rd day. He rose from the grave so those who are in Him too will rise from the dead. 

Jesus humbled Himself to nothing so we could be made right in God’s eye and have a place in eternity with Him. We receive the gift of Salvation when we confess Jesus as our Lord and believe in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead. (Romans 10:9). 

When we truly know Jesus and His love for us, we can’t help but abide in Him. 

Where sin abounded, God’s love and grace abounded more (Romans 5:20). May God’s love turn us back to Jesus and away from a life without Him.

No matter what happens in life, we can be sure that Jesus loves us because He chose to die for us. There is no greater thing that Jesus could ever do for us than die on the cross on our behalf so that we may be saved for eternity if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. 

Let the cross be what roots you in God’s love. There are many ways we can see God’s love for us, but no love can compare to God choosing to give up Jesus to save us. Romans 5:8-10 says, ”But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!“

Your circumstances may not be perfect, but God’s love for you is perfect because He sent His only begotten Son so that through Him, you can be perfected, cleansed from the stain of sin, and be with Him forever. So remember the humility of Jesus.  

Prayer: Jesus, thank you for Your humility. You freely gave of Yourself for us on the cross without any hesitation. Even at our lowest moments, may we always remember Your undying love for us.
