Truly Humble, Truly Great
[Christ Jesus] made himself nothing.
(Philippians 2:7). Even though Jesus was “in very nature God,” he “did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage” (Philippians 2:6). Instead, He surrendered His power, became “a servant” and “humbled himself by becoming obedient to death”.The One who held all power surrendered every bit of it for the sake of love. Greatness isn’t flexing ones power, greatness is humility which is greater than power. Jesus, who could demand our praise or force us to be obedient, laid down His power in a breathtaking act that won our worship and devotion. Through absolute humility, Jesus demonstrated true greatness, turning the world upside down.
