Jesus – Our great Example of True Humility – Zac Poonen

There are only two spirits operating on the earth today. One, the spirit of Satan (Lucifer) urging people to go up – whether it be in the world or in Christendom. The other, the Spirit of Christ leading people to go down like their Master. Like the corn of wheat, Jesus went down, and all His true disciples can be identified unmistakably by this characteristic.

The humility of Jesus is seen in all its brilliance in His death. There never was a more unjust trial than the one Jesus went through. Yet, He submitted to injury, insult, injustice, humiliation and ridicule, in silence. He did not call down curses on His enemies. He neither threatened revenge nor called for angelic assistance. He gave up all His rights as the Son of God. The ‘clenched fist’ is an appropriate symbol of the human race – signifying both the desire to hold on to one’s rights, powers and possessions, as well as the desire to fight back when attacked. Jesus on the other hand, willingly opened His palms to receive the nails on the cross. His palms were always open, giving, giving and giving. Finally He gave up His own life as well. This is true humility.

Lord, Give me Light!!

1. If I have not forsaken all
In answer to Thy loving call;
If I’ve kept something back from Thee,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.
Lord, help me judge myself each day,
To walk this new and living way.
I seek Thy grace with all my heart,
To be made pure, just as Thou art.

2. If anything upon this earth
Attracts me with its sense of worth;
If money has a hold on me,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

3. If all my life revolves round me
And thoughts of my own family;
If I am living selfishly,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

4. Is there some good I should have done?
Is there some soul I should have won?
Have I hurt someone thoughtlessly?
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

5. If someone’s failure has not wrought
Concern and care within my heart;
If I’ve judged others inwardly,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

6. If I have cared for man’s applause,
Or sought my own and shunned the cross;
If I have feared man’s mockery,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

7. If I’ve not sought Thy pow’r in prayer,
Because of earthly toils and care;
If I’m not longing after Thee,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.
