“What is the real Christ? Divine humility, bowed down into the very depths for our salvation. The humility of Jesus is our salvation.

We read, ‘He humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, death on a cross. This is why God has given him an exceptional honor” (Philippians 2:8-9 God’s Word ©)’…But the salvation that Christ brought is not only a salvation that flows out of humility; it also leads to humility. We must understand that this is not only the salvation which Christ brought; but that it is exactly the salvation which you and I need. What is the cause of all the wretchedness of humanity? Primarily pride; humans seeking their own will and their own glory. Yes, pride is the root of every sin, and so the Lamb of God comes to us in our pride, and brings us salvation from it. We need above everything to be saved from our pride and our self-will” (Andrew Murray, The Master’s Indwelling, Chapter 7, edited to modernize the language).
