1Chron.28, 2Pet. 2, Micah 5, Luke 14

“For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted”

Jesus, you embody humility.

Not considering equality with God something to be grasped, although it  was entirely yours to possess, you made yourself weak. You took on my form. You submitted yourself. You denied yourself to the utmost. For me.

I want with everything in me to follow your example. At times.

Though painful,

gut-wrenchingly difficult,

and, in fact, impossible by my shear will,

I pick up my cross. The very mechanism you determined to crucify self.

Merciful Savior, give me the grace today to remained crucified. Dead to self. And claim my identity in you. That I no longer live but that you live in me.

I want to see you resurrected in me.

That I may decrease.

And decrease.

And decrease.

Not I, but YOU.
