Our Lord Humbled Himself so that We Could Humbly Call Him Lord
If pride precedes the fall
We’ve further down to go
Unless we’re saved by Christ’s humility
Who for our sake was brought low
So that we may be set free
From the pride that preceded Adam’s fall
(Philippians 2:5-11 & Romans 5:12-21)
It’s just a rhythmic run-on sentence with one point:
The only reason we are able to humble ourselves and call him Lord is because our Lord humbled himself to bring our salvation.
Christ’s humility is the only hope for our own.
We find humility not by trying to make ourselves less proud, but turning our focus to Christ and the work He has done so that we may live the gospel.
