Jesus said ......

"Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and 
humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." Matt 11:29
 

How wonderful is the humility of our God.

It is astounding that God in His humility sent his Son as a tiny baby, needy and vulnerable. 

He was born in a cattle stall because there was no room for Him anywhere else. A manger 
was his crib. His mother and earthly father were humble peasants and he was brought up 
in obscurity in a lowly home.

We look in wonder at Jesus Christ's humility throughout His life. At the end He washed His disciples feet, and endured a humiliating trial and death. How precious it is to us that although He was God's son and could have summoned legions of angels, He allowed himself to be arrested, tortured and crucified. We bow our heads in awe and worship at His meekness.

What thrills me most about God's humility is that He stooped down to rescue us when we 
had done nothing to deserve it. When we didn't even know we desired Him, He drew us to 
Himself with a heart full of love and forgiveness. More wonderful still, having saved us from 
the darkness of sin, He calls us His own children and welcomes us into His banqueting 
hall, a place full of love and light. 

Let us go in and have fellowship with Him.
