THE HUMILITY OF JESUS
“But I am among you as the one who serves” (Luke 22:27). “The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”” (Matthew 20:28; also Mark 10:45).
This begins our reflection of the humility in Jesus. It is hard for our minds to grasp the idea that Jesus, the Creator was there in the beginning with the Father and the Spirit; all three in perfect unity creating a universe in which to place one special being, made in their image and likeness. No sooner did this special creation begin to enjoy unstained fellowship with God, than man allowed deception to break that fellowship. Why didn’t God deal with Satan right then and reverse the evil that interrupted such fellowship? He did!
He did, but not the way or time we would have planned it. God chose the way to deal with sin and evil through coming into our condition through His Son, Jesus Christ. This way did not mimic man’s military method of conquering an enemy through brute force, but through another method-- humility. There had to be a complete, unmistakable contrast between the independent, self-willed and disobedient heart of Satan and man. It came in the total dependent, obedient and humble life of Jesus. The very way He came into the world as a lowly babe “wrapped…in swaddling clothes and laid…in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn” (Luke 2:7). Was this really the way for the Creator, Author of life, King of kings and Lord of lords to enter His creation? YES!
