One of the subjects I have blogged about, and frankly, struggle to understand myself, is humility. While I pointed to many Scriptures before on the subject of humility, there is one amazing example that is beyond human understanding. Why would God the Creator of all things, the utterly holy and righteous divine being, stoop into a condition called humanity, to save sinful man who only deserved judgment?
But I have more questions:
Why did God chose the path of entry as a lowly babe (Luke 2:12)?
Was it necessary to select a virgin that would become the talk of the public (Matthew 1:23)?
Why was His birth place a cold, smelly animal stall and feeding manger (Luke 2:12)?
If God came in this lowly manner, did it also require the hatred of a pagan king who sought to destroy His life (Matthew 2:13)? In the wake of this furious reaction to Jesus coming, many boys from the age of two years old and younger were killed causing innocent mothers to have empty arms. Why such a path?
Joseph and Mary we on the run to preserve the life of this child they had been entrusted with (Matthew 2:13, 19-20). How did this dislocating experience play into God’s plan?
The world had never seen HUMILITY like this because the opposite of humility is pride which was the cause of sin. The world system is built by Satan on pride. It is humility in Jesus that has undone the work of Satan and his pride. Jesus is continuing to undo Satan’s work through those who are willing to be humble like Jesus. Will you join His tribe?
