And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
Mother Teresa gave everything to serve. She had very little material possessions and ministered to people considered the poorest and neediest. As she humbled herself more and more throughout her life, the Lord lifted her up to do great things in his name.
Humbling oneself does not mean to talk oneself down and feel unworthy, but it means to know that all power comes from Jesus. The dependence on God makes all the difference. It’s not about us, but always about God. God longs to do great things through each of us, but we must first let go of ourselves and cling to the cross of Christ.
Prayer: It is amazing, Lord, how you work through me. I thank you for the opportunities of growth you will be giving me today. I pray that I cling to you as you guide me through. Amen
Faith Tip: If God asks you to do something today, and your first thought is, “I can’t do that,” your second thought should be “Get behind me Satan.”
