I have been wondering why those who really have everything do not boast in it, and show it off the least chance they get whiles those who have just received some coins make so much noise with it and end up losing them in a heap of sand.🤔
Christians are supposed to be imitators of the very life of Christ but what is happening ?
Even in church people take up high positions and glory in it without actually serving but want to be served. Forgetting that Jesus humbled Himself enough to wash the feet of His disciples.
Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name…
Our Senior brother Jesus, whose life, i simply cannot wrap my head around, amazes me.
It is simply mind blowing how His love for unworthy souls got Him stripped off His crown, Riches, respect, honor and robed in a garment of pain, filt, insults, judgement and insanity yet He uttered no words about how great He is but humbled Himself as a sheep ready to be slaughtered for you and my sake.
Ask all the big people around (preachers inclusive) and you would realize God picked them out of the gutters and others, the bush, just like David, washed them and robbed them in royal garments.(Luke 1:52)
No one wants to be around proud people, they talk too much with little action, they always want things done their way, acting all bossy because they think they have and know it all making no room for additions.lol
Now let us take a look at this…
For a seed to become the huge beautiful tree, bearing the good fruits we all see and admire when we pass by…
It decides to look ahead, and envisioning the glory ahead surpassing the pain at the moment, it therefore decides to die completely to itself in a dirty evironment(soil) with different elements until it gathers enough resources to break dormancy and come up the dirt looking all fresh ready to set out on a journey of greatness it was meant to live.
People who humbles themselves find favor in God’s sight and are loved by many.
Humility is the number one step to greatness and that is the fear of the Lord;
its wages are riches and honor and life.
Always remember that God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.
He will give you a great name once you drop the one you have now.
Father in the name of Jesus, i bless your name for how far you have brought me, please forgive my errors and accept my prayers.
Help me pick up my cross daily and follow you, it is difficult but through you i am able to do all things. Work with my heart and teach me how to love without restrains.
Thank you Lord for making your ears attent unto my prayers amen.
