God will never cease to amaze the person who opens their eyes to The God of Unlimited Ability and Possibility!
How did Christ come to earth?
What was it that made Christ so hard to understand?
“Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your King comes to you, righteous and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” – Zechariah 9:9
Have you ever considered why Christ, the big Guy the King of Kings and Lord of Lords would ride a donkey?
I can picture some old Jewish leaders now as this is read out loud thinking- “this has to be a mistake.”
I mean after all how can our King ride a lowly donkeys foal.
Humbleness is the key to righteousness was perhaps one of the biggest lessons that Jesus taught us and one of the most difficult to learn at times.
Why is humbleness so important?
Because of the focus God wants us to have. If my focus is on my “doing” or your “doing” I cease to be about Love and instead become about judgment which alienates me from you, God and the mission of Love.
Following a legalistic code automatically makes us “puffed up” or shameful and once again both of these take the focus off Love and others and puts it on me and my doing.
Jesus came as a humble servant to show us simply that its the servants that are holy and those looking to Him for their righteousness that are the righteous.
Dont Worry- Be Humble!!
