The Humbleness of Jesus

And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:8-11 NKJV


A devotion for April 23rd through the 29th


This weekend, Friday and Saturday (April 21st and 22nd), our church had its first Spring Revival.  We have not done an event such as this before.  We had 4 different pastors, ours included, who each presented on a segment of the Life of Jesus emphasizing His humbleness through it all.  His example for all of us.  It was truly a blessing.

The parts of Jesus’ life that were covered were birth to baptism, baptism to Gethsemane, Gethsemane through crucifixion, and the last was all about Jesus being our advocate in the Heavenly Sanctuary interceding for us until He brings us home!  Each sermon was so awesome and really blessed everyone.  Each pastor did such a great job.  There was something that I took note of through this whole event that was amazing to me.  God’s hand at work!

My husband planned and organized this whole thing and gives credit to God, and he’s right!  God played the biggest role in so many ways.  In planning and organizing this whole thing, my husband did not give any specifics to anyone, just a general “cover this time period concentrating on Jesus’ humbleness”.  That’s all that was said.  He did not know what each pastor was going to cover or say for their presentation, and he did not tell them anything about the specific songs our choir would sing.  The organizing in this area was very minimal and yet, God was there.

During the event I noticed, and so did others, that songs were placed in just the right spot to go right along with what was said in that specific presentation.  It was as if my husband picked out the songs after talking to the pastors or vice versa, but that never happened.  One incredible moment happened during the third presentation when the pastor began talking about the pain inflicted on Jesus and the depth of that pain.  He mentioned the Passion of the Christ movie.  My husband did not know he would be talking about this, and the pastor did not know my husband was moved by God to show a music video that showed parts of the crucifixion from that same movie, “His Blood” by Carmen.

That was just one of the ways God moved this weekend.  God was at work and working through my husband and others to bring about messages that had a profound affect on all those in attendance.  We all need to remember that no matter what is going on, He is at work and His message will go out.

Pray and listen for God’s voice.  He is always working, and He will be glorified!  Glory be to God!
