We have one more reason to give glory to Jesus. He did a wonderful thing: He humbled himself. See (Phil. 2:8) “And being found in human form, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, yes, the death of the cross.”

This is a great accomplishment, because it is very hard to humble himself. It is easy to humble somebody other, but very hard to humble himself.

Many times I found myself in this situation: I know that I should deny my own set purposes in regard to another side of a potential conflict. To receive something, I need to deny my desire to receive everything. I need to be glad in small, because otherwise the other side of the conflict is dissatisfied by my attitude to prevail over them. Humbleness is just denial of prevailing over somebody, in order to make a more fair deal.

The essence there is that I know how to behave in this situation: I need to be humble, but I cannot be humble. All I could is to masquerade as a humble person. But this won’t work in relations with God, because God always knows whether we are sincere or masquerade.

As I experienced in my life, a great enemy of humility is a too particular prophecy. If I set my purpose onto some special thing, I lose flexibility to be humble, to choose some other thing, and so receive nothing.

Maybe, only Jesus can humble himself. But to receive humility we need to set our purposes on him. Not on some particular prophecy. Not on some specific thing of the world, but on him who has the wonderful power to humble himself (and us together with him).
