It is interesting that we are celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in a season that has humbled everyone. Jesus Christ the Messiah lived a life of humility, completely surrendered to God even in the face of death. He was able to say, “not my will but yours be done”. Jesus was all about pleasing the Father. He called people to repentance, to seek God, and walk in love. He went about healing, freeing people from demons, feeding the hungry, and doing good works.
A life of humility is dependent on the Almighty God. I pray that this season drives us all to a place of complete dependence on God as our source. A life of humility constantly seeks God’s best, and only accepts what the Bible says. It is a life of consistent spiritual growth. That’s the life of a Christian and it is the good life.
Tell the people of Jerusalem, ‘Look, your King is coming to you. He is humble, riding on a donkey— riding on a donkey’s colt.
