The Power of Humility

He did not rail against the people who were making the charges or make excuses for the things He was accused of. He simply and humbly accepted His sentence and was led to His death on the Cross. 

As with most of Jesus’ life, this too was countercultural. Because humility is seldom seen as a strength or as an attribute of a leader. It is more likely seen as a weakness. Perhaps that it is why the power of the humility He demonstrated was so perplexing to His accusers. 

Being humble in the face of such dire circumstances was an incredible demonstration of faith and resolve.  

In recent times, I have been focusing on Jesus’ model of leadership and the humble way He led. In doing so, I have come to realize if I am going to “follow” Jesus, humility is something I must learn to model.   

His life proves the power of humility will always be stronger than the weakness of pride. 

If we are truly Christ followers, humility must be something others would say they see in us. Because when they can, the power of that humility may be the very thing that leads them to Him 

Matthew 23:12, “The greatest among you will be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
