Philippians 2:5-8

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: 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!”


Jesus humbled Himself and took the form of a man. He humbled Himself to the point of death on the cross for our sins. He came to save us and preach His gospel of truth so that all may believe in Him and have everlasting life. He calls us to live in harmony with one another not in pride but willing to associate with people of low positions (Romans 12:16). Further, not to regard oneself as higher than others but think of oneself with sober judgement (Romans 12:3). In humility and the mind of Christ valuing others above oneself, not looking to one’s own interests but to the interests of the others (Philippians 2:3-4). Jesus calls us to have the same mind with Him through meekness and we shall be exulted at the appointed time.


Humility in Hebrew is written as anavah which also means meekness, gentleness and clemency.  Humility is a gift of the Holy Spirit who gives us freely as He wills. Humility comes before honor but wisdom’s instruction is to fear the Lord (Proverbs 15:33). When pride comes, there is disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom (Proverbs 11:2). When we humble ourselves under God’s mighty hand, He lifts us up in due time (1 Peter 5:6). Naaman humbled himself when he was instructed by prophet Elisha to go and wash at the Jordan river seven times. He received his healing even though at first he was resistant (2 Kings 5:9-14). Those who are meek are blessed for they inherit the earth (Matthew 5:5). The humility of a little child is the greatest asset in the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 18:1-5).


Dear Lord Jesus we come to Your feet with humility in our hearts. We humble ourselves before You, may You have mercy on us. May You forgive us for the many times we have been proud before You and not feared You our Lord and Maker. May You forgive us for every pride in our speech, actions, emotions, actions and in every way merciful Savior. May You forgive us and wash us with Your precious blood. May Your grace overcome the pride in our hearts as You guide our steps and walk of faith. May we decrease as You increase dear Lord Jesus. May You touch the hearts of all those who have lost their loved ones including the fallen soldiers, that You may comfort them and grant them peace. May You bless all those who are suffering including the street children and be their present help in times of need. May You accelerate us from one glory to the next Heavenly Father and may Your purpose for us come to pass at Your appointed time. We shall not delay in accomplishing our divine plan in Your name dear Jesus. May You fill us with Your fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility and self control, precious Holy Spirit. We shall walk as You walk, think as You think, hear as You hear, see as You see, speak as You speak, love as You love and always be in the same mind as You are loving Jesus. May You bless us and keep us dear Lord Jesus. May You shine Your face towards us and be gracious unto us. May You show Your countenance unto us and give us peace. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forevermore. Amen
