Jesus Christ and Humility

The grand themes of Love and Peace are the guiding lights for Christians, imprinted in our souls through the divine life of Christ, the epitome of humility and submission. Jesus, the radiant manifestation of God in human form, embraced His holy mission with a spirit of humbleness, a divine virtue we, His followers, ought to embody. In this narrative, a few sacred tenets command our attention:

Jesus Christ, the image of the divine, emerged with an attitude steeped in humility. Although He was the celestial likeness of God, He chose the modest identity of a servant, refraining from seeking glory for Himself. This is the divine humility that we, as His followers, should strive to embody.

Jesus wholeheartedly surrendered to God’s will, even when it foretold His crucifixion. As disciples of Christ, we should acknowledge our rightful place in His grand design and submit to His divine will, even if it necessitates the sacrifice of our own desires.

Jesus assumed the form of a servant, forsaking the pursuit of worldly status or power. Instead, He chose the sacred path of serving others, even washing the feet of those who would betray Him, as did Judas. We are called upon to learn from Jesus’s divine humility, to serve others, even those who wound us.

Whether we perform acts for the glory of God or reflect upon our own identity, we should be led by humility and submission, as Jesus was. As servants of God, our ultimate goal should be to bring glory to Him, without expecting earthly rewards, just fulfilling our spiritual duties.

Thus, to tread the humble path blazed by Jesus means renouncing self, surrendering to God’s divine will, and finding joy in serving others, as Jesus did. Ultimately, love and peace, the heavenly gifts, emanate from God, conveyed to us through Jesus’s humility and self-sacrifice. We are invited to learn and practice these sacred principles to gain the blessings and divine favor of God.
