Dear friends, Christ is yours. Christ as he comes in the power of the Holy Spirit is yours. Are you longing to have him, to have the perfect Christ Jesus? Come, then, and see how, amid the glories of his Godhead – his having been in the form of God and equal to God; amid the glories of his incarnation – his having become a man; amid the glories of his atonement – his having been obedient to death; and amid the glories of his exaltation, which is the chief and brightest glory, he humbled himself from heaven down to earth and on earth down to the cross.
He humbled himself to bear the name and show the meekness and die the death of the Lamb of God. And what is it we now need to do? How are we to be saved by this humility of Jesus? It is a solemn question, but thank God, the answer can be given. First, we must desire it above everything. Let us learn to pray God to deliver us from every vestige of pride, for this is a cursed thing. Let us learn to set aside for a time other things in the Christian life and begin to plead with the Lamb of God day by day, “O Lamb of God, I know Thy love, but I know so little of Thy meekness.” Come day after day, and lay your heart against his heart, and say to him with strong desire: “Jesus, Lamb of God, give, oh, give me Thyself, with Thy meekness and humility,” and he will fulfill the desire of them that fear him.
