The Humble Servant . . . by Joseph Littlefield
The Humble Servant
Jesus is a God who comes low. He left heaven to become a lowly human; the creator emptying Himself to become the created. He came as a human, not to take a place of prominence or recognition, but that of a lowly servant. He came not to be a servant of the noble but to serve the lowly; to be abused, abandoned and slaughtered; and to sacrifice Himself on their behalf. From the infinite realm of heaven lit glory to the dark, dusty, death-ridden realm of us, here in a fallen world. The God in whom all majesty, power and beauty resides came as low as low can be lowered – for you and for me. He is truly the humble servant in whom all our worship is due.
