Christians are required to follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ as it is written
“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:5-11).
Humility comes before promotions, and Christians should learn humility from Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, being the second head of the trinity, had all things to his advantage in heaven, yet he gave up all his royal honor and allowed God to debase him and send him to earth for the purpose of saving humankind. Since he proved submission, God rewarded him with better honor. Hence, all people must confess him as Lord to be saved. Since Jesus proved submission, God commanded all beings to confess him as their Master, and every soul must declare him as the Son of God in order to receive the gift of eternal life. The scripture emphasized Jesus Christ and said,
“Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11).
Dear God, please make me a humble person. Give me the grace to demonstrate sincere humility like your Son Jesus Christ who submitted himself to ridicule and dishonor for the purpose of saving humanity. Help me to submit myself to you also; let me think about you more and serve you better. To demonstrate my sincerity, I, therefore, submit on my knees today and confess my sins and declare Jesus Christ as my Lord. I declare that he (Jesus) is Lord, and I accept him as my personal Savior. From now on, I will serve Jesus with all my strength, and I will do this for the rest of my life! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
