Going out of your comfort zone where we feel like a king by ourself is so hard that it even destroys our ego and pride thoroughly, and we feel very demeaned. It is by our nature as a sinful being that makes us feel worthless everytime we humble ourself before our fellow believers. For there is such the tendency that we will be misjudged by others, with the idea and perception of "weak and dumb."
On the one hand, we may feel very confident of our own ability and skills to finish things up, upon accomplishing our goals in life and getting what we want.
In this manner, we tend to boast of ourself, being completely ruined by our own selfish ambition. But on the other hand, when things messed-up, to whom shall we go?
Paul reminds us in his letter to the Philippians, "Don't do anything from selfish ambition or from a cheap desire to boast, but be humble toward one another always consider others better than yourselves."
There is no greater manifestation of complete humility like Christs, who though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with Him, instead this Messiah emptied himself taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. Christ is the incarnate God in the manger, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost and was born of the Virgin Mary.
As God's creation habitually and intentionally sinning against His presence, He did not wiped them out totally. Instead, as a manifestation of His loving and caring nature, He willingly humbled himself and became obedient through His Son Jesus Christ. God lived among us in the flesh through the Son who preached, healed, and did miraculous and irrational divinely actions that those hardheaded Pharisees and Scribes, commonly known as the "primary critiques" of Jesus, cannot comprehend. They even accused him of being ill-mannered when they saw him entering a tax collector's house and eating with socially-condemned people of his time.
They (Pharisees and Scribes) do not understand his actions for they are boldly judging others and bragging of their seemingly holiness yet filthy ways of being "self-righteous." In this manner, they think of themselves as righteous based on their works with their righteous way of living, yet condemning others.
This is a lesson for Christians. Who are we to judge? Who are we to condemn? There is only one righteous judge, God!
For as God loved us and knew our condition that we cannot fully obey the law, but to a certain extent only, then He did the unimaginable sacrifice.
Through the second Person of the Godhead, we are saved by the blood of the Lamb that takes away the sins of the whole world. There is no greater love than this; Christ gave his life for us to have life, the eternal life we all want in His kingdom in heaven.
Therefore, Christ was exalted that every knee should bow down before him in heaven and on earth, and even those who are under the earth!
Because of his vicarious atonement, the victory over sin, death, and the devil is now sure, for by his death and the spilling of his precious blood, God accomplished His purpose of saving us all from eternal damnation in perdition.
Thus, all of us will give glory as we wait for the second advent of the King our Savior.
Be glorious and joyful, the King our Savior Jesus Christ has come to our aid!
