Humility

Blog

4/2/23


The next day the huge crowd that had arrived for the Feast heard that Jesus was entering Jerusalem. They broke off palm branches and went out to meet him. And they cheered:

Hosanna!

Blessed is he who comes in God’s name!

Yes! The King of Israel!

Jesus got a young donkey and rode it, just as the Scripture has it:

No fear, Daughter Zion:    See how your king comes,    riding a donkey’s colt.John 12:12-15 (MSG)

Today during prayer I was reminded of humility. I am writing this on Palm Sunday. A day to remember Jesus riding into Jerusalem with all the people excited for the coming of their King. He did not ride in making a big performance but how humble an entrance. He being who he is had right to show up with a grand spectacle but chose to show us what is is to be humble.

I think as I read this passage Jesus calls us not to show off as we enter like we are better than others. With humility remember that we are nothing with our him. Remember that only through his grace we are saved. It not about what we do or what we have done it’s all about Jesus. But how quickly we forget. On a Sunday “Hosanna” and before the end of the week we are back to following the crowd “crucify him”.


“So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭2‬:‭1‬-‭11‬ ‭ESV‬‬


Jesus did not come to have hold ourselves up to be better than others but for us to come together lifting each other up in community. Loving one another and going the journey together so that we can remember to humbly serve others while lifting the name of Jesus up for the world to see, so they can also reach the savior. Don’t follow the crowd of the world, follow the humble steps of Jesus. Live Free family.
